Description

Slush takes place in Helsinki and it's the biggest startup conference in the Nordics, whose mission is to create and help the next generation of groundbreaking entrepreneurs by bringing together 25,000 changemakers. For the third year, Slush and HiLIFE from the University of Helsinki paired up to bring together researchers, startups, investors, students, and all those enthusiastic about commercialization of research, to inspire concrete actions in the field of life sciences. Through a program full of exciting talks and startup pitches, Y Science promoted the value of science-based business, and encouraged scientists to embrace a different way of thinking about impact.

Y Science was divided in three sessions:
- Part 1 included short talks from top scientists,
- Part 2 consisted of a life science pitching competition for startups,
- Part 3 included more short talks from investors and successful science-based entrepreneurs.

Throughout the event, the audience also had the possibility to connect with other attendees in the Y Science networking area.
