This is the age of SaaS. According to Gartner, Software as a Service holds the largest segment of the cloud market, and its revenue is expected to hit $85.1 billion in 2019, growing at a rate of 17.8% compared to the previous year.

Zooming in on the Indian tech scene, Chennai has evolved to become the country’s SaaS capital, boasting over 10,000 people in the workforce and about a billion dollars in revenue. As of September 2018, Chennai’s SaaS sector has raised about $500 million in funding, with most big players generating more revenue than their funding.

Apart from the clarity they possess in startup fundamentals and growth levers, the city’s tech founders derive their strength from one other important aspect — their close-knit SaaS community.

In an effort to further foster their fraternity, the founders of leading SaaS companies in the country have come together in Chennai to create an exclusive, founder-centric event, flavoured by real conversations and meaningful networking.

SaaSBooMi will be the zero-fluff platform for founders to share their honest stories and hard-won lessons straight from the trenches, peppered with exclusive tête-à-têtes and immersive site visits.

The event is to be held on the 18th and 19th of January, 2019 and is expecting the participation of over 300+ SaaS founders from all across the APAC region.

If you (and/or someone you know) share the SaaSpreneur DNA, mark your calendars and keep an eye on the event’s official website for the agenda and other ongoing updates.
