In what will be the first conference of its scale with a pure focus on B2B software-as-a-service (SaaS), more than 100 different VC funds are flying into Dublin to meet the next wave of companies at SaaStock next week.
The calibre of venture capital investors purely focused on B2B SaaS makes SaaStock the only place to be, outside of Silicon Valley, next week. Investors include 500 Startups, Atomico, Accel, Scale Venture Partners, Bessemer Venture Partners, Salesforce Ventures, Frontline Ventures, and many more.
‘We are extremely excited to host SaaStock in Dublin – a natural choice, given the large cluster of international SaaS companies and the exciting indigenous companies making it the forerunner to be the SaaS hub of Europe’
– ALEX THEUMA
Notable speakers at the event include: Leo Widrich, COO and co-founder at Buffer; Des Traynor, co-founder of Intercom; Elizabeth Yin, partner at 500 Startups; Ray Smith, CEO at DataHug; Stacey Bishop, partner at Scale Venture Partners; and Philippe Botteri, partner at Accel.

Next week at SaaStock – the brainchild of Alex Theuma, founder of SaaScribe – from 21-22 September, more than 700 investors, start-ups and speakers will congregate for an event that is 90pc sold out.
“SaaStock is the first conference of this scale with a pure focus on B2B SaaS, outside of Silicon Valley,” Theuma said.
“We are extremely excited to host SaaStock in Dublin – a natural choice, given the large cluster of international SaaS companies and the exciting indigenous companies making it the forerunner to be the SaaS hub of Europe.”

The conference itself takes place at the RDS on Thursday 22 September, with over 60 different speakers and an expo hall, and investor meetings –including Office Hours with Atomico and Accel – taking place throughout the day.
