I know we’ve just gotten the 2017 Annual behind us, but we wanted to give a special shout-out to the 10 sponsors that have already signed up / renewed for 2018. (We’re still learning what a “good” renewal rate is for sponsors, but our hope is to renew 80% of our sponsors for 100% of the net revenue of last year. More later on why we came to 80/100 as our goals).
If you want to join them, and pick your location first, and get other early-bird access benefits — email us at sponsors at saastr inc dot com and/or grab the early-bird prospectus here.
Interestingly, while our sponsors provided us the most visceral and critical comments of our 3 segments of stakeholders — speakers, sponsors, and attendees — feedback volume was not correlated with NPS. Our sponsor NPS was 53. (We’ll do a separate post on NPS learnings from the Annual soon).
With that — big thanks to:
