We aim to help to build a bridge between THE HEALTHCARE AND SPORT SECTORS OF FINLAND AND IBERIA.
The big goal is to increase business between these two areas in these sectors. This is why we are, this year, not only bringing Smash to Iberia but arranging a bigger event around it, where Finland can meet the local key actors, from the representatives of government and companies to the wider startup scene.
SMASH IBERIA WILL BE HELD IN LISBON AND MADRID IN THE SECOND WEEK OF OCTOBER 2018.
”THE MIRACLE ISN’T THAT I FINISHED. THE MIRACLE IS THAT I HAD THE COURAGE TO START.” ― John Bingham
Smash is dedicated to sport, health, technology and start-ups. Smash is an arena for curiosity, meeting and developing, where new perspectives, ideas and partners are waiting to be found. The arena caters for all sport, from elite sports to keeping fit as well as for spectators. At Smash we develop sports and technology in an appropriate form of co-operation.
For us at Smash, sport is the greatest source of passion and enthusiasm. That is why we are willing to work tirelessly, so that both playing and following sport should always be more fun and more rewarding.
We want to exceed the limits by bringing together the best ideas from sport and technology. The first of its kind in the world, we offer a meeting place where sports, passion and technology will find each other.
One needs to be inspired, to overcome the challenges of everyday life or to find the right partners. Another is developing an innovative technology or service, in which lies new opportunities. So a platform is needed where the missing pieces can fall into place.
At Smash we inspire and make ideas into reality. One can find something new, while another can move forward. Together we can find something that at present doesn’t even exist. The shackles of everyday life can be stripped off for a moment to indulge in the flow of sport.
Smash is aimed at all sports, exercise and technology start-ups and growth companies. We offer an incredible framework to together raise awareness, network and develop partnerships and launch new products. Investors are on the move and relationships are created. We will help you jump ahead in the sports arena.
In the demo area growth companies openly exchange ideas and showcase their products and services. The demo area also has stands for partners and growth companies – enquiries about this here.
Smash offers the best few teams the opportunity to pitch on the main stage in front of the entire audience. Passage to the main stage will be decided by a pitching contest. The registration for the contest will close on October 20, 2017. Stay tuned for the winners!
At Smash the most innovative and growth-oriented operators meet, all in search of partners. You will find grass-roots players as well as growth companies ready to conquer the world. Exercise and well-being is a constantly growing megatrend. The alliance of sport and technology is just beginning and therein lies the unlimited commercial potential. Trailblazers will reap the rewards first.
Matchmaking and meetings
Matchmaking is dear to the heart for Smash. Investors can access the profile information of registered startups and can propose a meeting. The Smash team is at hand to support the organization of a successful meeting.
