Transfluent Takes Slush To The Next Level With #TFPARTY

Slush recently took 14 startups to the Alibaba World Developer’s Conference in Hangzhou, China including Transfluent. During one evening, Tranfluent CEO and co-founder Jani Penttinen was chatting with Slush organizers Miki Kuusi and Riku Mäkelä and floated the idea to enhance Slush events by adding a party to the Slush event agenda. A fun and exciting way to bring start-up talent closer together and help to build the kind of camaraderie that would benefit all of the attendees through deeper interpersonal relationships, creating trust from joyous shared memories. That discussion lead to the Transfluent sponsored #TFPARTY!

Slush is a non-profit event organized by a community of entrepreneurs, investors and students. Although Slush has grown from a 300-person event to become one of the leading events of its kind in the world, the philosophy behind it has remained the same: to help the next generation of great, world-conquering companies move forward. Today, Slush is a focal point for Eurasian startups and tech talent meeting with top-tier international investors, executives and mass media. In 2014, Slush brings together more than 10,000 attendees with 2,500 companies for the two-day event, which takes place from November 18th through the 19th in Helsinki.

The Magic of Slush

“We are proud to do our part in helping to enhance Slush for everyone who attends the event” said Mr. Penttinen. “The mission and the magic Slush provides for new ideas and great people is something worth fostering, and our involvement in sponsoring the #TFPARTY is just one way we see ourselves working together for the benefit of everyone. From ringing the NASDAQ closing bell to the pumping musical beats you’ll hear at the end of the next show in Helsinki, Slush is proving business can be productive and fun at the same time.”
