Slush is a very serious organisation when it comes to the startup scene. @GiddyUp was correct to highlight that summary.

They run really big events in Singapore and Finland annually. If Ripple is serious about investing in tech startups that could impact XRP usage then Slush is an absolutely legitimate place to start getting themselves involved in that space.

Ripple is on a roll! This will be a great platform to reach out and foster collaborations. Hopefully startups are paying attention and help enhance xrp use cases!

I can just about guarantee that startups are paying attention.

Any major sponsor of an event like Slush, especially someone of Ripples stature, is probably taking part in a lot of the behind the scenes programs that happen around tech events like this (IE: mentoring sessions, pitch competitions, etc). No doubt people from the Ripple team are involved as judges and coaches as those serve as pretty amazing networking and exposure opportunities for investors and more established industry players. Those kind of positions also usually come along by default with sponsorship roles.
