The Marketplace Conference is back in San Francisco!

Panel at the Marketplace Conference Berlin

We are very excited to announce that The Marketplace Conference is coming back to San Francisco on March 27th (secure your ticket here!).

One year after the inaugural edition of the conference, we will be back in San Francisco for the second US-edition of this event and our 3rd Marketplace Conference overall. What started last year as an experiment to bring marketplace entrepreneurs, aficionados and investors together in a new, intimate format has grown to become one of the most anticipated platforms for exchanging knowledge and insights about these beloved businesses.

We are very excited to team up with Autotech Ventures and Battery Ventures for this year’s edition, and we hope that with this partnership we can, once again, make the conference a great experience for all attendees. We are also extremely grateful for the support of our event sponsors, including Yapstone,, Silicon Valley Bank, Robert Walters and WellsFargo.

The Marketplace Conference is a one-day event and will take place on March 27th at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco. Similar to previous events, all content will be provided through a number of different tracks, including Fundraising, Operations, Growth and Strategy, as well as a special track on Mobility to cover this exciting space.

As we are putting the final speaker line-up for the event together, we are extremely grateful that we have been able to secure support from great (recurring) speakers such as:

  • Ann Miura-Ko — Co_Founding Partner at Floodgate
  • Jessica Lee — Partner at Sequoia
  • Mariam Naficy — Minted CEO
  • Sam Shank — HotelTonight CEO
  • Jonathan Golden — Partner at NEA
  • Stephanie Palmeri — General Partner at Uncork Capital
  • Melody McCloskey — Styleseat CEO
  • James Currier — General Partner at NFX
  • Niko Bonatsos — Managing Director at General Catalyst
  • Sam Zaid — GetAround CEO
  • Stephane Kasriel — Upwork CEO

If you are a marketplace founder or executive, this is an event you don’t want to miss! Check out the video below to get an impression of what the Marketplace Conference has to offer, or visit our Youtube channel.

As usual, the conference is designed as an intimate event with a few 100 participants. We therefore recommend to secure your tickets quickly as earlier editions sold out well ahead of the actual event!
