This year, all the bright minds from the different fields of academy, start-ups and growth companies are gathered at a joint SLUSH side-event Turku <3 Business x Academy x Startups. The side-event is organised by the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi, Turku Science Park, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Novia University of Applied Sciences as well as Health Campus Turku.
The strength of the Turku region are the growing start-ups, agile business’, the broad and unitary academic community and the city of Turku that have found each other in order to co-operate. This collaboration has made an enormous economic growth in Southwest Finland possible in times of business disruption.
Turku region is lucky to have a lot of new opportunities and we also want to make the visible to all SLUSH visitors on Thursday November 30, from 2 pm to 5 pm. There is time for discussion too because people sharing the same passion can definitely find new and better ways to co-operate.
