We had a blast at SaaStr’s Spring Soiree at our new(ish) Co-Selling Space
home last night. There were grilled cheese sandwiches paired with tomato soup from American Grilled Cheese Kitchen, delicious cocktails served with flair from Sharpshooters, and swag bags filled with goodies for every attendee.
By far, the highlight of the evening was the content, as we saw Intercom CEO Eoghan McCabe join Jason Lemkin onstage for an informal fireside chat, while our CRO Dayna Rothman led a panel on marketing, sales, and SDR compensation with The Bridge Group’s Sally Duby and Mixpanel’s VP, Marketing Emma Dunstone.
This morning on Twitter, Jason shared his own learnings
from his chat with Eoghan. Continue reading "About Last Night: What We Learned at SaaStr’s Spring Soiree"
We’re up to ~900 total attendees for our first SaaStr Europa now in Paris
! We’re capped at about 1,000, although we may be able to squeeze a few more in.
This will be a 1+1+1 day event, with our main full day on Friday 15 June, a kick off party on 14 June at The Family, and a VC-Founder Morning and Half-Day on June 16 with August Capital, Insight, Accel, Point 9, and other SaaS leaders. We have extra tickets set aside just for founder/VC day if you want to get funded or learn how to, so sign up here
We have room for 3 more sponsors — click here
if interested. The lead quality should be very high if you sell to CEOs and founders of B2B companies.
We’re also continuing to add great final speakers:
We’re proud to have > 60% women and multicultural speakers at the 2018 SaaStr Annual, and we hope to meet or exceed that in 2019.
But our bigger goal is to drive our attendees to similar levels of inclusion and diversity. Our 2018 attendee Diversity and Inclusion program was fully subscribed and worked well, so we want to go even bigger this year on a number of levels.
In further of those goals, we’re going big and setting aside 1,000 full, no-cost passes to the 2019 SaaStr Annual for applications to our Diversity and Inclusion program
Yes, it’s early, but we’re planning for 12,500+ folks this year for the ’19 Annual Feb 5-7, so we need to start early to hit our aggressive goals.
Please apply now here! As crazy as it sounds, all 1,000 will be spoken for
. We’ll assign them in batches of about 100
