We don’t want speakers back at least for 2 years, ideally longer, and we want content that is fresh and unique to us.

But then over the years, we’ve made some specific and intentional exceptions for “Fan Favorites”.
For folks that the SaaStr community really, really wants to hear from live again. The ones with the highest NPS. We still require them to do new and novel content, but we bring the best back with new learnings, new inspirations, new ideas and new content.
So a partial list here of Fan Favorites coming back to 2023 SaaStr Annual, Sep 6-8 in SF Bay Area:
Scott Belsky, CPO of Adobe: “AI and How The Creative World is Changing”
Scott’s insights on how to build products that scale are always super insightful, and Scott is back again at this year’s Annual.
David Sacks, Founder, Craft Ventures + Jason Lemkin: “What SaaStr Will Be Like in 2024”
David and Jason do a 1-on-1 deep dive on how 2024 will look for SaaS, from IPOs to Unicorns to Funding to Growth Rates and Efficiency.
Mark Roberge, GP at Stage2 Capital and ex-CRO at HubSpot: Who Will Win the Go-to-Market AI Race — Startups or Incumbents?”
Always a fan favorite, Mark is back!
Tracy Young, CEO of TigerEye and Founder-CEO of PlanGrid: “Path to CRO with CROs of CircleCI, Lattice and Notion”
Tracy joined us as CEO of PlanGrid before its $800m acquisition and did a wildly popular Workshop Wednesday, and now she’s bringing an epic CRO panel to Annual 2023: the CROs of Notion, Lattice, and Circle CI. Should be a great one!
Michael Siebel, Managing Director and Group Partner: What The Top Founders Do Better to Scale Even Now with Y Combinator’s Managing Director
Michael’s one of our all-time highest-rated speakers and we’re super excited to hear what he sees as state-of-the-art for startup growth today.
Nick Mehta. CEO of Gainsight: “Top 10 Failures as CEO with Nick Mehta“
Nick did an incredible Top 10 Failures he learned getting to $200,000,000 in ARR and now he’s doing it live with an open mic and AMA after. Will be great!
Christoph Janz, Point9 Capital: “The Latest 2023 Napkin Reveal”
Christoph’s been part of SaaStr since Day 1 and is back from fans’ requests to reveal the details of his funding napkin and more for 2023 — along with an Open AMA.
And so, so much more! 100s more speakers, workshops, braindates and more!! See. You. There.
