Slush 2017 is only 9 days away and next week promises to be the most busy for many attending Slush. You have to be prepared for a perfect pitch if you’re a startup or if you’re an investor your listening and decision making skills need to be the sharpest. Of course, if you’re just attending Slush for the sake of it being the best and biggest startup event — you might have the chance to enjoy much more,walking through the venue halls and attending as many talks as possible by all the amazing speakers Slush promised this year.

One of the best things about Slush is that the startup ecosystem involved realizes how important it is to keep the hype up, before, during and after the event. If you’re active in the startup community — your party invites have already given you a hard time to accommodate them all in your schedule. Of course, if you’re young and energetic your instinct might be telling you “ have fun until there is no tomorrow”.

For many of us, this is the time to shine through with next level organizational skills and make the choice: what party/ies should I attend this year? Check them out — we’ve put together by date all Slush Official Parties plus side ones. Check them out:
