Why visit the happiest country in the world in November?
November 14, 2023
The Finnish batch of the 4NGELS cross-border training and investment program is coming to its last step, after conducting four training sessions for 20 startups and 70+ investors. The focus of the programme has been to train startups to become investment-ready and to train investors and provide them with knowledge on how to invest in Finland. Now the last event of the program is the official study trip to Finland.
5 reasons to join the study trip
If you are living outside of Finland and wondering if you should visit Finland in November, here are 5 reasons why you actually should:
Finland is notorious for Slush; one of the world’s leading startup and tech events. 5000 founders, 3000 investors, and the world’s largest gathering of VCs under one roof. In addition to hundreds of Slush side events – which have been praised to be even better than Slush. The Slush Week is an experience you do not want to miss.
2. FiBAN’s annual investor-exclusive after-party
Business Angels in HEL will have 150+ investors from all over the world. Without any keynotes or presentations, the focus is on networking and partying. The spots are running out, act fast to make sure you reserve your spot. (Update: the event is full, you can join the waitlist).
3. Network with Finnish business angels
Come meet Finnish investors, and the Finnish Business Angels Network – Europe’s largest and most active business angel network. This is your golden chance to create connections in Finland and to ask locals for tips to make the most of Slush Week.
4. Austrian connections too
Not only Finnish connections, but Austrian too as a delegation from Advantage Austria will be joining us for the morning event. Meet the organization, some investors, and startups. Two countries in one trip!
5. Visit Maria 01
Maria 01 is the leading startup campus in the Nordics. 1400+ members, 170+ startups, +958M€ raised by members (2017-2021), this campus boasts energy and inspiration. We will have an introduction from the Maria 01 team and a campus tour.
Slush tickets are almost sold out, so be quick and secure your tickets ASAP! You can also join us without a Slush ticket, there are plenty of side events to attend as well.
This trip is by invitation only, so check your inbox for your invitation, and see you in Helsinki!
