Organised on December 1–2, the Finnish growth business event Slush is based on personal meetings between startups and investors. In order to ensure healthy and safe meetings also at this year’s event, Slush is cooperating with Finnish Vetrospace, whose virus-free workspaces enable safe encounters.
Vetrospace was founded in 2017 in Finland. The company’s patented CME technology eliminates harmful contaminants such as viruses, bacteria and small particles from the air.
”The CEO and founder of the company, Jouko Urpolahti, is excited about the cooperation with Slush:
“Well-being and security are megatrends that currently affect us all, and especially event management. We are really pleased to be able to make one of the finest events in the world possible, while also taking part ourselves.”
"Vetrospace provides our visitors with a place to have private conversations in safe conditions. We are happy to work with them to introduce the new normal to our event,” comments Santeri Toivanen, CMO of Slush.
Building the perfect workspace
The Finnish growth company aims for significant growth in the coming years. The company has received orders especially from the US, France and other Nordic countries.
“Our products are used in a variety of ways, from offices to maternity hospitals. Inevitably, the recent focus has been on viruses and bacteria, but in the future, the cleanliness of indoor air, noise nuisance and a suitable temperature are all key factors for the well-being of employees,” says Urpolahti.
In product development, Vetrospace focuses on the future, where workspaces are tailored to the needs of teams and individuals. Growth is being boosted by a recent investment from Verso Capital, the private equity firm that will become the majority owner of Vetrospace. Anssi Kariola, the founder of Verso Capital, sees significant growth opportunities:
“The need for safe and productivity-enhancing workspaces existed before the pandemic and is now even more pronounced. Vetrospace has a unique starting point to meet this demand and create workspaces that can be agilely tailored to the needs of the company and the individual. Finland and the Nordic countries are pioneers of a healthy working life in terms of technology and operating methods, which creates a good starting point for us to go global. We look forward to building international growth with the Vetrospace team,” Kariola reflects.For more information, please contact: Jouko Urpolahti, Vetrospace firstname.lastname@example.org +358 50 521 9826
