This year in Helsinki, Finland, from November 30th to December 1st, the world’s leading startup technology conference Slush took place. Two days of the event gathered over 20,000 people from more than 130 countries under one roof, including 2600 startups, 1500 investors, and 600 journalists.
Slush attracted to Helsinki tech-heads from around the globe. The stage was taken by the most prominent influencers in tech such as Vinod Khosla, Founder of Khosla Ventures, Martin Lau, President of Tencent, Leila Janah, Founder & CEO of Samasource & LMXI, and Adena Friedman, President & CEO of Nasdaq.Among the famous guests spotted at Slush were the president of Finland Sauli Niinisto, former vice president Al Gore, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, Prince Daniel and French Secretary of State Munir Mahjoubi.This year, the main topic of the conference was the question: “How can entrepreneurs solve the biggest problems of the universe with the help of technology?” The PublBox team has already considered this issue, which is why after our participation at WebSummit in Lisbon at the beginning of November this year, we decided to go to Helsinki to search for the answers and find potential partners. After all, these kinds of events are not only to find investors but first of all, for professional growth, networking and raising awareness of your brand.PublBox passed all the stages of the selection set by the organizers and was present at the startup alley on the second day of the conference, December 1st. Our stand caught the attention of many participants at Slush, our product appealed to potential partners and investors, and we received a lot of positive feedback and recommendations. The results of these interactions will not take long to be seen! In a word, in the second quarter of next year, we are planning our next investment round, with preliminary negotiations with potential investors having already taken place.
In 2018, PublBox is planning to increase its presence in global and local European markets. Today, our product has four localizations: EN, RU, PL, and ES. By the end of the year, we are also planning to launch FR and DE language versions.
We do not stop at what we have achieved, but continue to work our international team towards the development and improvement of the PublBox service!
