It’s time to start SaaS Office Hours again! Starting on May 14, I’ll be hosting a monthly event from the Redpoint San Francisco offices called SaaS Office Hours. During these two hours, we will discuss the tactical issues and questions facing seed and Series A SaaS companies in a small group. That’s why we call them Office Hours. We’ve done them in the past and they’ve been a great success. Rather than deliver presentations, SaaS Office Hours are meant to be casual, tactical and collaborative. Sometimes, we’ll invite guests for off-the-cuff conversations and Q&A focused on focused questions like how should I build my startup’s marketing team? How can I evangelize my product to developers? How do I create the right kind of recruiting process? In the past, we’ve welcomed guests Pete Koomen (founder of Optimizely), Kenny van Zant (architect of the flywheel GTM), Bill Macaitis (CMO at Zendesk and and Maia Josebachvilli (head of people at Stripe). On May 14, we’ll welcome Travis Bryant! Travis is a former VP at Salesforce, SVP Sales at Optimizely, and Head of Customer Growth at Front. With Travis, we’ll talk about go-to-market for early stage companies. How to plan and build it. What to look for in your first GTM hires. And why you should consider calling your CRO or VPS something different. You can also ask him for some advice on parenting newborns! Sign up for Office Hours here. Demand for these events often exceeds our hosting capacity, so we will email confirmations a week or two before the event. A quick note about SaaS Office Hours: these events are in person, so please register only if you are certain you can attend. Our goal is to create an intimate environment for founders and executives to network and learn from the SaaS world’s leading experts in different fields. We’ll continue to experiment with the program over time. If you have feedback, suggestions or ideas, please email me using the link on the top right of this page.
