Gaming companies are making their last minute preparations for Slush, one of the biggest start-up events in Europe.
Helsinki Business Hub together with Otaniemi Marketing has invited international gaming companies to check out Greater Helsinki’s bustling gaming scene at Slush on November 13-14. Among the international visitors are the global gaming giants Nintendo, Square Enix and CROOZ.
Nintendo Europe’s Game Evaluation Manager Tim Symons says the company is particularly curious to get to know Finnish game developers.
– We are keen to meet with the independent developers that are interested to learn more about self-publishing on Nintendo platforms or want to propose original projects we can consider partnering with. We look forward to being surprised by the creativity and talent at Slush.
The word for the available Finnish top talent has also reached Square Enix and CROOZ. Both companies share Nintendo’s interest towards Finnish game development expertise.
– We are interested in meeting developers and publishers for mobile and online products. This can be about distribution, publishing of existing products or ventures and partnerships of products in development, says Christine Thaarup, Business Development Director at Square Enix Europe.
Welcome to the Pit Stop!
Four international companies will be accompanying the joint Slush Pit Stop of Helsinki Business Hub and Otaniemi Marketing together with Finnish educational and neurogaming companies SkillPixels, NeuroReact and Mental Capital Care. These Finnish growth companies belong to the large pool of yet less known startups with highly talented staff looking for their product to hit the limelight.
Kristoffer Rosberg, the CEO of SkillPixels, a company specialized in gamified learning, as they like to portray themselves, sees Slush as an extremely valuable event for any startup.
– Networking, fundraising and information exchange are the core of Slush. It is also the team event of the year. That’s the reason why all of us are attending!
Come meet all the gaming companies at the Pit Stop at Slush!
