Important information concerning Takeoff 2020: 

As Slush 2020 is cancelled, we are currently finding alternative ways to organize Takeoff this year. We will let you know of any changes as soon as possible! 



It is the teacher’s responsibility to select participants from his/her school and apply to the event by registering both the students and him/herself. For schools located in Finland we accept 10 students and one teacher per school. The criteria are that the students take at least one business course at their own school during the academic year. For schools located in other Nordic countries there will be a separate quota.


How to enter?

The registration for Takeoff 2020 will open in fall 2020. We will publish a more specific date later on this page. 

Registration takes place using an electronic registration form in which the teacher fills in the information of both themselves and the students. The registration form automatically has entry fields for 10 students but it is not necessary to fill in all 10 fields if fewer students are participating from the school. Please note that applying for team leader positions takes place using the same form. Therefore it is important to ask the students’ interest in being a team leader before registration for the event.

By attending the event the students and teachers agree to Slush’s Code of Conduct and give us permission to take photographs and videos that can later be used for marketing purposes. This means the students/staff can later be seen in our official visual materials for marketing and communication purposes, including website, Instagram, brochures etc. It is the teacher’s responsibility to inform the students about these requirements and upon registration fill in the agreement on behalf of the students as well.

Please note that the participation is not guaranteed until you have received a confirmation email! If places become available for the event due to cancellations, the school first on the waiting list will get notified.
