The Day After: Here’s what we saw at SaaStr 2016

by in Sales


In just 2 years Jason Lemkin, Gretchen DeKnikker, and Max Altshuler have built the SaaStr Annual conference into a bonafide success. The Nob Hill Masonic Center provided the perfect backdrop for this year’s hip, high-tech networking-focused event, which even featured performances from breakdancers. From attracting over 3,500 attendees from all over the world, to featuring some of the hottest SaaS technologies on the market, SaaStr was well worth the cost of admission.

According to IDC, by 2018, 27.8% of the worldwide enterprise applications market will be SaaS-based, generating $50.8B in revenue. Our industry is growing at a healthy rate and SaaStr proved an excellent opportunity to keep up to speed with the biggest SaaS trends.

Oh, and did I mention the parties? SaaStr organizers and sponsors hosted fantastic after-parties around the city.
