This fall Europe’s leading startup event Slush introduces an entirely new event to its lineup – a two-day music and technology conference Slush Music, held on Nov 30–Dec 1 in Helsinki. Slush wants to help entrepreneurs in the music industry by bridging the gap between tech, music and entrepreneurship.

The team and delegation of Music Estonia is also attending Slush Music. According to the director of Music Estonia, Virgo Sillamaa, it is exciting and welcoming that North-Europe’s leading tech and entrepreneurship conference has now also focused on music industry’s present and future by organizing a special event Slush Music. „I can only assume that its focus is even more on a crosspiece of music and technology compared to the regular conference. And concentrating on the problematic of attracting investments is also important – what kind of models might bring private investors’ attention and interest to music sector? Hopefully Slush Music offers enough possibility to analyze these matters,” said Virgo.

On Tuesday, November 29 Enterprise Estonia, e-Residency and Tallinn Music Week festival will host the official opening party, Enter e-Estonia of the international technology conference Slush in Helsinki, Finland. Taking place in the three-chambered heart of the Helsinki nightlife – Kuudes Linja, Kaiku and Stidilä complex – in the colorful district of Kallio, the party features the most innovative Estonian tech companies, the best of Estonian cuisine and music program, presented by Music Estonia and Tallinn Music Week festival, with thrilling live acts and DJs from both sides of the Gulf of Finland.
