November might not be the best time for sightseeing around Helsinki or enjoying nice weather, but it is definitely the hottest time of the year if you are a hacker or start-up co-founder...
Following the local EIT Digital Alumni tradition, we are organizing once again the perfect evening to complement your participation in two of the biggest tech events in the Nordics: Junction and Slush! And what better way to celebrate your success (or get over your failure) than to share with your fellow alumni your experiences in previous hackathons and Slush(e)es. Join us for a series of interesting talks to learn what will make it or break it when you are trying to survive November in HEL!
After the official part of the event, we will continue the evening with pizzas, drinks, sauna and an open stage for anyone else interested in pitching their hackathon projects... No matter if you are going to Junction, Slush, both or none, don't miss this unique opportunity to network with other EIT Digital Alumni!
