Austin Hill Country Family Resort | Hyatt Regency Lost Pines

What can you expect? A premium, invite-only retreat, providing an invaluable opportunity to connect with founders going through the journey as you.

How often do you get to go behind the scenes and below the surface with some of the greatest SaaS founders in the world? SaaSociety is the ultimate opportunity to do just that. It’s two days full of connecting with and learning from other scaling SaaS founders – accelerating your drive, your network and your knowledge.

Friday 2 June – 60 minutes of content (firesides/small panels)

Saturday 3 June – 90 minute roundtables hosted by selected leaders

Why should you attend? When founders and CEOs step away from the day-to-day, working on the business as opposed to in the business – that’s when the magic really happens. SaaSociety helps create peer to peer connections for founders, often leading to mind blowing results; most recently Paddle’s $200MM acquisition of Profitwell. In short: the impact this retreat can have on attendees and their businesses is huge.

We have a long way to go and by no means can we achieve all of our aims alone. We are privileged to partner with like-minded organizations to help us achieve our mutual aims.

If you feel underrepresented in the SaaS industry, you can apply for our Diversity & Inclusion scholarship.
