This Wednesday, June 22nd, we’re hosting the Newstalk SaaS Bootcamp Growth Day.
8 of the companies who participated in the 6 month bootcamp will present at the Growth Day, taking the audience through their evolution, from relative sales and marketing novices to the experienced practitioners they are today. If you’ve already reserved your seat at Growth Day, grab a notepad and prepare yourself for an afternoon of rich insights and lessons learned.
The Bootcamp is a first-time experiment for this office and also I believe, for the NDRC, who expertly delivered it. Teamwork, Phorest, Intercom, Hubspot, SalesForce, Qualtrics, Marketo, Trustev and many others - the companies and mentor list reads like a Who’s Who of the SaaS world globally.
I love that the Bootcamp brought the next generation of Ireland’s best SaaS companies together to learn, and I love that the focus was building global sales and marketing machines to scale these companies fast. Supporting this level of ambition and ability is what this office is all about.
The Bootcamp is also a solid precursor to SaaStock, Europe’s first ever SaaS conference, happening here in Dublin in September.
I’d like to thank Newstalk for their generous support of the Bootcamp programme. SaaS may not be the bread and butter of a media company like Newstalk but telling the story of great Irish businesses is, and that's why CEO Tim Collins will be joining us on Wednesday.
And now Irish startups, while I have your attention: read John McGrane’s piece on Brexit published Monday in Dublin Globe. John wrote it specifically with our “flock” in mind.
The Remain side seems to be experiencing an 11th hour rally so lets leverage our networks and help make June 23rd Remain Day in the UK.
