What about the networking?

76% of event attendees rank networking as the most important element of any conference or event, so we want to ask:
If there are five people in a room to connect, how many potential 1 to 1 connections are there?
That’s right 10. So, if you use the algorithm n*(n-1)/2, with 250 of New Zealand’s finest SaaS founders and leaders together, then that’s 31,125 potential connections! 

Come to meet your peers, potential partners and future mentors. Tap into possible connections and collaborations, and meet peers and leaders who can:

• Guide you
• Challenge your thinking
• Provide a missing piece to your successful SaaS business puzzle
• Be a sounding board for whatever is percolating in your brain
• Be someone you can help.
