As many of you may be aware, the recent collapse of SVB Financial Group has caused a major ripple effect in the global startup community. While we are happy to see the rescue plan put in place so fast by respective governments to avert an extinction level event, we are incredibly saddened to see this happen and we acknowledge the emotional toll it has taken on Founders, SVB customers and the SVB team themselves. 

Our mission at SaaStock is to make a real, impactful difference in the lives of founders and the companies that make up the SaaS community. We recognize the importance of our mission now more than ever and would like to extend our help and support to anyone within the community who may need it. 

Whether it’s lending an ear, offering advice or opening up our network and making introductions, the entire SaaStock team are here to help.

Additionally, we’ve compiled a few helpful resources for founders:
