Humans make more than 35,000 decisions per day. Founders & Investors probably make a lot more… At Aarhus Slush'D, we want to explore those choices - by asking the right questions. This year's theme is CHOICES.

what's happening?

Aarhus Slush'D gathers the Danish startup community in one place. From 12:00 PM to late in the evening, the Slush'D conference will be exploding with inspiring speakers, unique networking opportunities, and exciting exhibitors. This is a must-attend event for founders, investors, and startup curious folks. If you choose to join, you just might meet your next investor, investment, co-founder, costumer, or best friend.
