How to actually take advantage of massive conferences and fairs like Slush is a question that bugs both corporate and startup representatives. This year we pilot our Venture Client Roundtable event, where we introduce pre-selected startups to six Combient companies for discussions during Slush Day 1.

With the great help of Slush partnership and our corporate teams, we are matchmaking at scale at Slush. During the fall we have jointly discovered business preferences with real underlying business needs to be addressed together with startups. Our aim is simple: we identify technology-driven solutions that best fit the business needs and could be piloted with a Combient company and later scaled globally across our network. You can read about the business needs at our previous blog post here. We cannot wait for the outcome of the event as we place decision-makers from the corporations, ranging from executive group members to domain experts, together with top startup founders and entrepreneurs into the same tables!
