About this event

This is SaaStock Local Europe

A collaboration organized by and for the European SaaS community

In the face of a global crisis, what unites us is the same goal. We are all adapting; We need to re-think and re-strategize. We need to ask questions, think of new ideas, and seek answers. What was previously a world of physical interactions has now gone online.

What we are also learning is that by moving to the online, there are no barriers to collaborating in this global mission. So, for the first time, our European City Leaders and Community organizers are coming together to put on a multi-session online event organized by them for the whole of Europe. It’s a chance to ask key community leaders questions, to start a conversation on how to do things now. Whether you’re a Founder, part of a leadership team, a key member of a SaaS company, an Investor, or perhaps a consultant, this is the opportunity to learn and network together.

SaaStock Local Europe is organized by the City Leaders from London, Dublin, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Vilnius, Krakow, Prague, Kyiv, Helsinki, Athens, and Munich. Yet anyone in Europe is welcome to attend.

For every ticket sold €1 will go to a charity towards COVID-19 response.
