We are so excited for 2019 SaaStrAnnual.com on Feb 5.6.7!
As part of Annual, we expanded our Diversity + Inclusion Program to include 1,000 no-cost VIP Passes to underpresented B2B founders and executives, up from 400 last year.
The special program includes:
- VIP seating to all session
- First registration to all sessions
- Special events at Annual (womens’ luncheon, Inclusion awards, etc.)
- Invites to all VIP parties, including Opening Night party on Feb 4
- First access to all mentoring programs
A huge thank you to Kleiner Perkins for immediately agreeing to sponsor both last year and this year (the only sponsor that stepped up), and also Gainsight and Mixmax for promoting the program and serving as Diversity Ambassadors for us, and PagerDuty for sponsoring Inclusion Awards at Annual. And to our own head of marketing Amelia Ibarra for almost single-handedly managing it.
We are incredibly excited to have the most inclusive Annual ever. Our speakers are currently 59% diverse, and our attendees are 42% diverse.
There’s much more to do. In particular, we have a lot more work to do to get founders and execs from the most underrepresented groups to Annual and to everything in even more force. That’s a top goal for us in 2020.
But this still will be great.
See you soon.
