Around the world, movements that want to drive entrepreneurship and empower the upcoming generation can start under the Slush name. Sometimes these movements continue to grow from quirks and sparks to wildfires, sometimes they change shape and take a different form or brand.
Currently, Slush events and communities have been started, in addition to Helsinki and Shanghai, in Tokyo, Singapore, London, Berlin, Stockholm, Paris, New York, Trondheim, and more than 40 other cities.
Slush was adopted to Tokyo in 2015 to change the attitudes towards entrepreneurship. It grew from scratch to 6,000 attendees in just a handful of years, starting a movement that was never seen before in Japan. Slush Tokyo has been driven by local students and entrepreneurs, who have made headlines by their contrarian paths.
Now, Slush Tokyo has evolved and given birth to a new local movement, operating under the new brand, Bark.
