The AVC Daily Email

Published

on

Most of you read AVC via email.

Today, all of you will see a refresh of the look and feel of the daily email to match the refresh we did to the website last week.

I want to thank Phil Hollows of Feedblitz who made this happen for all of us. And Kirk Love who created the new look and feel and helped a bit with the email work too.

A few stats: There are about 29,000 email subscribers to AVC. The daily open rate hovers around 40%. So roughly 12,000 people a day read AVC via email. That compares to an average day when about 6,000 people stop by the website and several thousand more who subscribe to and read the RSS feed on a daily basis.

I hope you all enjoy the new look and feel.

Videoconferencing’s Moment

Published

on

I am going to spend much of today in my Zoom room participating in several meetings around the country and around the world.

If you look at Zoom’s stock price over the last month, since the outbreak of the Coronavirus, you will see that the market thinks that I am not the only one who will be doing that.

The combination of limiting travel due to Coronavirus fears and the desire to lower carbon footprints tells me that we may have reached videoconferencing’s moment.

Maybe attending a meeting in person is a thing of that past and video’ing in is our future. If so, we may look back at this winter of 2020 as the moment that happened.

We’ve Doubled The Capacity For Most Workshops At Annual

Published

on

SaaStr Annual 2020 is almost here!!  March 10-11-12!!  Woo-hoo!!

One new element that has proven super popular is a new dedicated wing of just workshops.  We’ve taken over the attached Marriot and turned all of its conference rooms into workshops.  Many of them almost instantly filled to capacity.

So, we’ve reconfigured the space from rounds to chairs to essentially double capacity for most workshops.  If you saw that a workshop was full, check back into reg now and/or later this week and it likely will be open now.

A Preview of SaaStr Europa 2020: 3,000+ in Paris 17-18 June

Published

on

We’re heads-down for the biggest, best SaaStr Annual ever!  But right after that, we’re gearing up for the 3rd SaaStrEuropa.com in Paris, 17-18 June.

If you’re thinking of attending or attending again, a few highlights:

  • We’re back at the stunning Maison de la Mutualite, right in the heart of the Left Bank again.   Same great location as in the recap of last year in the video above.
  • Tracking to 3,000+ attendees … so it’ll be packed.  We’ll see where we really end up on attendance, but right now we’re already tracking to almost 2x (!) of last year!  Whatever it is, it will be significantly bigger than last year … and packed.  This is realistically as many as we can possibly fit in this venue.
  • Far more attendees — but same sponsor pricing through March.  If you want to sponsor, do it now.  Even though we’ll be a lot bigger, we’re holding the same sponsor pricing through early March.  This is called deflation!  So sponsor now 🙂
  • More workshops, more braindates, more mentorship.  We’ll add over a dozen new workshops on scaling, even more braindates and mentorship sessions last year, and more VC sessions.  We’re basically adding almost an additional stage each day (3x), so there will be even more to do.
  • 50% of our speakers are slotted, but if you want to speak — apply now.  It is not too late.  Scroll to the bottom here.  We are mainly looking for underrepresented founders, unicorns, and high brand start-ups, but we’re open to a lot of things.  Just apply soon, like really soon!
  • Tickets are still really cheap until March 1.  Not as cheap as a few months ago, but really cheap.
  • Champagne, jazz, parties, and more.  Like last year.  But even better.

If you haven’t been to SaaStr Europa — it’s just really fun.  3,000 folks over 2 days is just enough to meet tons of people, but not so many you get overwhelmed.  Term sheets are easier.  Meeting a top unicorn CEO is easier.  But it’s big enough there’s always tons to do.

Join us if you can!  In Paris!!
