18 Nov 72 hours of magic in the North – 30minMBA at Slush

This year’s Slush was amazing.

We at 30minMBA had the wonderful opportunity to be part of the Swedish Hotspot with the brightest booth at the whole conference. It became a meeting place, and everyone was invited to the party. Team Sweden with people from Business Sweden, Swedish Agency for Economic and Regional Growth, Almi and Vinnova did an amazing job putting the Swedish startups on the map.

It’s always inspiring meeting business leaders passionate about their employees and share how we with 30minMBA is making it possible for them to support their people even more with an engaging mobile learning experience where they can develop their business skills when it fits them.

Meeting like-minded people regardless if it’s for a formal dinner, in the line to pick up another coffee or on the dance floor is always exciting. At this conference, it’s possible to meet awesome people everywhere.

I had the great honor to sit down with Prince Daniel, Niklas Zennström and Peter Vesterbacka at the Swedish Embassy discussing the thriving entrepreneurial climate in the Nordics and the importance of entrepreneurial role models in our community. 

One trend of this year’s Slush was the focus on meeting places. Instead of limited seating that is common at this kind of events, it was possible to meet people easily and sit down and grab a coffee. I had the opportunity to participate in so many great conversations, a venture lunch, dinner at the Swedish embassy, countless off-site events and the legendary party closing Slush on Thursday night.

In short. This year’s Slush was a meeting place for passionate people with a drive to make a difference. A place to meet old friends, new friends and share so many great moments.

Thank you all for making it happen!
