Welcome to the stage of your company where stuff gets a bit crazy and quite expensive. Not that it was normal or anything before that. Look at it from the bright side: to get here you probably will have built a movement, established a category and will most likely be sitting on the makings of an IPO. Not a bad sacrifice to make. Here is a brief overview of what you will learn from the Scale track at Saastock18.
While listening and learning to tactical sessions on growth may not bring you comfort, it will bring you insight, ideas, and strategies for reaching the next level of challenges. That’s what the SaaStock Growth track provides. SaaS veterans and investors are here to counsel you on the uphill climb from $1M to $10M ARR: how to fix what’s broken, do more with less, and grow, grow, grow. These are just a few of the must-see speakers this October.
This year we are bringing that experience once again with 8 deep-dive bootcamps on some of the most pressing topics for SaaS companies such as Growth Marketing, Sales, Customer Success, and Pricing. Here is an overview of what each bootcamp is offering so you can make your pick. You may want to hurry up as the CEO bootcamp is already sold out and ticket prices are increasing on October 1st.
This year, SaaStock will feature something we’ve never offered before – a Global SaaS Startup Pitch Competition. During our competition, we hope to find the most promising B2B SaaS startup of 2018 and showcase them on our main stage. Here is a list of the judging panel.
On the second day of SaaStock, we are transforming the Traction Stage into Rocket Fuel. Devoted to the topic of funding, Rocket Fuel is a one-day track featuring some of Europe’s leading Early Stage VCs who will be delivering tactical keynotes for those SaaS Founders looking to raise Seed or Series A funding rounds.
While we are fortunate to have many returning partners, we are also fortunate to welcome for the first time many new ones. They have subscribed to our mission and are working closely with us to make SaaStock happen and be the best conference. Below is a list of 18 of them.
Our Startup Program, created with startups in mind, is getting better and better. You could say, we are slightly spoiling the young upstarts. However, we vehemently believe they could use a bit of spoiling. It’s why we introduced a Startup Program and a Global Pitch Competition in the first place. What we didn’t expect is how enthusiastically and generously, our partners would jump on board to help us.
I am happy to share that SaaStock is announcing the Zendesk/SaaStock Inclusivity Pledge, currently, a gender diversity pledge that will bring a more diverse slate of speakers to not only this year’s SaaStock conference but to all of our conferences going forward. In partnership with our Diversity & Inclusion sponsor Zendesk, whose executives refuse to speak at events where no women are involved, we are taking an important step forward on the journey of making SaaS conferences and the tech ecosystem more diverse.
We have put together an incredible roster of speakers for SaaStock Oceania. From international SaaS stars, travelling thousands of miles to help the ecosystem, to the local heroes growing companies by following the vernacular playbook in mind, they make up what is a truly spectacular line-up that promises to produce many insights on the day.
SaaStock18 is more of everything and the better of everything we have had so far. More attendees, more speakers, more events, more fun and, yes, more investors. If you’re an investor, then this year’s SaaStock will offer you more than any previous event so far. Here are 18 more investors joining us at SaaStock.
