Finland's Altum Technologies wins the Slush 100 Showcase of 2017


Altum Technologies offers a solution to clean industrial equipment without having to shut down production. They utilise ultrasound emitters to clean the inside of pipes, vats and machinery to combat the effects of fouling. This impressive solution is the only one of its kind in the world, and is set to save its users in maintenance and make up for lost production. 


- I feel ecstatic, Altum COO Bo Malmberg said after the results were announced.

- It is great to see technology like ours being recognized in the competition. We are in prime position to roll out into the rest of Europe now. This year’s Slush was an amazing experience altogether, and the feedback from the competition was valuable. I can recommend it to everyone!

The winner gets a Slush Global Pass, giving them access to all Slush events around the world in 2018, flights offered by Finnair, and a massive service package consisting of consultancy from PwC, developer services from Google, legal service from Dottir, and PR services from San Francisco Oy. After an intense contest, Objectbox placed second and AdLaunch came in third. Runner ups receive service packages from these partners too.
