Why Science

We're here to bring forth the value of science-based business, and encourage scientists to embrace a different way of thinking about impact. Y Science invites all those enthusiastic about life sciences and commercialization of research for a moment of mutual enlightenment.

The event, now at its forth edition, originates from a collaboration between 
Slush and HiLIFE from the University of Helsinki. This year we take it one step further and we welcome Finnish Forest IndustriesHealth Capital Helsinki, and Viikki Food Design Factory as co-organizers.


On November 17th, join us for a journey of discovery. Our path will pass through scientific breakthroughs, possibilities for concrete action and tasty teasers of what you can do with your skills if you just set your mind to it.

The event is one of the official side events of Slush, the biggest startup conference in the Nordics.
