CanariasZEC attends Slush19 to promote the tax regime of this incentive among emerging companies in the global technology ecosystem.


For the first time the Canary Islands Special Zone (ZEC) is attending the new edition of Slush 2019, which will be held in the Finnish capital (Helsinki) on 21 and 22 November.

Among the actions planned for this event, the ZEC is finalising a networking and meeting agenda with start-ups and companies linked to the technology ecosystem, as well as with institutions, organisations, corporations and international consulting firms. During this event participants will also take part in two initiatives: Ready to Launch by Slush and Opportunities of investment in Spain for Finnish companies, where the tax advantages of this incentive for businesses of this sector that wish to develop their activity in the Canary Islands will be introduced.

At the same time, on the occasion of this visit to Helsinki, a series of meetings with local prescribers and tax advisors is also being arranged.

Slush is one of the platforms with the highest potential to contact and establish businesses with emerging companies from all corners of the world, in addition to accelerators, incubators, professionals and international investors related to the digital economy, and thus attract investment from technology companies to the Islands.
