SAAS NORTH returns in person to Ottawa November 17-18th. Still on the fence as to why you might want to attend Canada’s top SaaS conference? Read BetaKit’s top picks below.
1. The BetaKit Keynote Stage
Let’s start with the biggest stage at SAAS NORTH: the BetaKit Keynote Stage, which will feature sessions programmed and moderated by BetaKit.
Some highlights? How about a session featuring Canadian unicorns Ada and Benevity on how they achieved billion-dollar valuations. Or a panel featuring ‘soonicorns,’ Canadian tech companies that one day may become unicorns themselves.
Want to learn why every SaaS company eventually turns to FinTech? Or insights from the 2021 State of SaaS Report? You’ll have to attend the BetaKit Keynote Stage. You can view the full speaker and session list here.
2. The SAAS NORTH Pitchfest
The fourth annual SAAS NORTH Pitchfest is back this year, allowing eight different companies to pitch judging experts live on stage.
Winners have the chance to receive $125,000 in cash and in-kind prizes. Not only will attendees be able to watch the pitch-off, but they’ll also be able to determine the grand prize winner through live voting!
3. The SAAS NORTH Investor Zone
Speaking of pitching, many SAAS NORTH attendees are likely hoping to connect with VCs at the conference. There’s no better way to do that than in the Investor Zone, which will ensure that founders and funders can connect in-person at SAAS NORTH.
There are several ways to participate, so if you’re interested, check out all the Investor Zone details here.
4. Social Events and Networking
Remember networking? SAAS NORTH is offering the opportunity to dust off your social skills for the first time in some time.
This year’s conference features a variety of social events, from welcome receptions to happy hours, and even a few networking breakfasts. To take a look at the full list of SAAS NORTH social events, go here.
Unsure of how you feel about interacting with other SAAS NORTH attendees? That’s OK! The conference is providing each attendee with stickers to indicate their comfort level, from handshakes to fist bumps, or perhaps a friendly wave from a distance.
