We know there are SaaStr fans in all corners of the world with more than 32% of 2016 SaaStr Annual attendees came from outside the US (and from 47 countries!).
We also know that coming to the SaaStr Annual is an investment. Sure, the hard dollar costs are part of it, but the time out of the office and opportunity costs of whatever-feels-more-important (but it’s not) are a big consideration as well. And for a founder coming from, say, Australia, multiply all of that by about 10x. It’s a big freakin’ commitment.
But fret not, global friends! Because last year’s international and US contests were so successful, today we’re officially kicking off our 2nd Annual “Show Us Your SaaS” international video contest (hold your horses Americans, we’ll get to you later in the year). Three lucky teams will each receive two full conference passes, and the Grand Prize winner will also receive up to $5K for travel – plus VIP access, a ton of other swag, and other fun stuff.
Grab your team and create a 90 second video telling us why you want to attend the SaaStr Annual 2017 and upload here. Then start promoting the heck out of it. We’ll take the 3 with the highest number of votes and pick a Grand Prize winner who will get 4 full conference passes + up to $5K in travel costs + VIP access (reserved seating, anyone?). The two Runners Up will each get 2 full conference passes + VIP access.
Spend as much or as little time on the video as you like, but make it fun. The community is definitely going to upvote you more on style than quality. Show us your office, team, city, best swag – whatever you want to share with the community. Tell us why you love SaaStr. Tell us why your city/country should be represented. Remember, this is about your team, not your product, so save the pitches for Demo Day.
Also, DO IT NOW. Today. The longer your video is up, the more votes you can get and the more likely you are to garner the goods.
Deadline for submissions is 11:59p PDT August 3, 2016. Voting continues through 11:59p PDT August 10, 2016. We’ll pick a Grand Prize winner from the Top 3 and announce all the winners on August 15, 2016.
Only teams located outside the U.S. are eligible (sorry Americans, you gotta wait until later in the year).
