Year after year, VCs show up to SaaStr Annual locked and loaded, term sheets in hands, on the hunt for soon-to-be Unicorns to add to their portfolios.
From the Founding Partners, Managing Directors and big name SaaS VCs who grace the stage — like 10X unicorn investor Jason Green of EmCap or SaaS legend Tomasz Tunguz, to the firms that send over a dozen of their Partners and Associates — everyone who invests in SaaS has a presence at SaaStr Annual.
We also see some private equity firms registering early, and the list of publicly traded companies sending Corporate Development teams is at least 2Xing year over year.
Whether you’re in it for the long haul and need cash to scale, or you’re looking for a speedy exit — or even if your dream is to become part of something bigger, where you can watch your product live on as part of a legacy brand — the folks who can make it happen will be here. And they want to meet YOU.
So take the time to update your LinkedIn, spruce up your pitch deck, and ask your mentors to help you perfect your pitch.
Then get ready to network!
And make sure you have your team’s tickets to SaaStr Annual 2018 — you can’t meet the VCs if tickets sell out before you’ve purchased them!
Here’s your early peek at the list of SaaS venture capitalists and investment firms already signed up for 2018…
