Unlike we do normally, we didn’t set any concrete numerical goals since our mindset was “as many interesting connections as possible.”, and oh we did achieve this. In total I’m estimating all of us three, that week we talked with over 400 people, over 100 hours of networking.
The official unofficial day of Slush. We kicked off the day with a cozy co-working session at our favorite spot, the Oodi library, with 9 of our awesome community members.
And then, it was time to call it a day, recharge for the official Day 1, and see what more Slush had in store for us.
This student-driven, non-profit movement sets an example for big corporations. The atmosphere is something else. Many success stories start with people volunteering and end with them building their own ventures.
The event runs smoothly thanks to these amazing, talented, and responsible folks who are always ready to help. It’s inspiring to see so many friendships and work opportunities bloom. Many Herizon members volunteered, and seeing those connections form made us feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
This part was the best. A few of our community members shared how they had researched interesting people and companies attending the event. They reached out to these individuals while delivering amazing customer service, for instance, at the cloakroom. Contacts were exchanged, and conversations started from there. This showcases the magic of being a volunteer at Slush and the power of being proactive and reaching out.
