How do you maintain (or adapt) your identity as you’re growing the company?
SaaStock Local connects the SaaS community in key cities across the globe through a series of evening meetups. We’re launching our first event in NYC, providing networking opportunities and valuable content led by local industry experts and SaaS founders, executives, and investors. Our mission is to add value to the community, connect the dots, and create a thriving network of passionate SaaS experts.
The first edition of SaaStock Local NYC will be focussed on how to maintain or adapt your company culture whilst scaling your business.
