Now Is The Time for SaaStr Events Speaker Submissions for 2022!

With an incredible SaaStr Annual 2021 IRL behind us — the biggest in-person tech event in the SF Bay Area in 2021 — we’re off to planning our 2022 events.

If you want to speak at any, now is the time.  Our current plan:

  • SaaStr Build (Digital) — March 2022.  Our second annual event for builders.  Last year we had the CEOs of Notion, Webflow, and so many other incredible stories and learnings from builders.
  • SaaStr Europa (In Person) — June 2022.  More details to come, but our third SaaStr Europa in Europe is back for 2021!  2,500+ SaaS founders, VCs and execs.
  • SaaStr Annual 2022 — September 2022.  This should be huge.  SaaStr Annual 2021 was basically limited to attendees from the U.S., but with international travel open again, we expect an event 60%-100% bigger than 2021!!

Submit for any of our events here.

Please also review our detailed guidelines here.  In a nutshell:

  • We prioritize diversity.  60%+ of our speakers have been less represented speakers since 2017 and all our IRL events since 2017 have had a majority of women speakers.
  • We require fresh content and perspective.  No repeats.  A session you already presented at another event?  No thanks.
  • We love new speakers — that are at scale.  We aim for 66% “new voices” at each event.  But you have to be far enough along to teach the next generation.
  • The content has to be about teaching the next generation.  Every session is the same in this sense.
  • Panels we try to avoid, unless there is special chemistry there.  Firesides almost all perform poorly and are boring.  Presentations with data are the best.  Propose those!
