With the 2017 Annual behind us and planning for 2018 underway, the team here is so excited to announce some awesome new opportunities for female founders and execs to connect throughout the year.

Join the Women of SaaS LinkedIn Group

4284

At the 2017 conference, the women organized a rogue lunch (thanks, Jarah!) and we were able to find a room in the venue last-minute to facilitate. The room was overflowing within minutes, so we’ll definitely have something much more organized in 2018. Since then, a Women of SaaS LinkedIn group has been set up. If you haven’t already, make sure you join the group!

 

Events at the CSS

Here’s what to expect from these events — Tactical, actionable, valuable content. Time to connect with women pushing a different boulder up the same hill. No fluff, no citing statistics. Women talking about their businesses, not about being a woman who also runs a business.

Last week, we were delighted to host Women in Revenue produced by our friends and Engagio here at the CSS. Over 200 women turned out to learn from the CMOs of Lever, Avaya, and Engagio as well as the Global SVP of Sales at Box. It was great.

An Evening with Fearless Women in Leadership – THIS THURSDAY

temp-saas2Thursday night we’ll be co-hosting “Nevertheless, She Persisted: An Evening With Fearless Women in Leadership” with our friends at DoubleDutch to benefit Girls on the Run. The line-up is pretty cool – Sandy Carter (CNN’s Top 10 Most Powerful Women in Tech), Kristina Shen (Bessemer), and Emily He (DoubleDutch)  — and I have the distinct pleasure of moderating (<- excited!☺️). Ticket prices are on a sliding scale, so if you can’t join us but would like to make a donation, 100% of the ticket proceeds will be donated to Girls on the Run.
