The Idea of SULA

The idea of SULA is to provide creative talents a space to meet peers and get new influences, but also to present their ideas to potential new partners. This is the first SULA, and we are aiming to continue and expand the event in the coming years”, says Kai Huotari, the managing director of Cable Factory.

SULA melts together a traditional business conference, pitching competition and advisory/financing services during one event, and is targeted to creative talents and businesses.

T goal is to create a similar forum for artistic, creative and culture talents as Slush, one of the globally leading startup and technology events, is for the tech-people, states Huotari.
