About this event

Up to 95% of SaaS companies fail before they reach €1 million in ARR.

Even for those that do, the journey tends to end here.

Why? Because scaling is hard. Even more with difficult macro-economic circumstances.

During our acceleration weekend, you will get invaluable, actionable insights into achieving scale-up success.

Directly aimed at founders and sales executives, this exclusive events is led by senior entrepreneurs with proven track record in B2B SaaS. From peer-based workshops, to intensive one-on-one coaching sessions, this masterclass focuses on 3 critical topics in scaling your business:

Sales Leadership, Conscious Fundraising and Personal Mindset.

  • Sales leadership: Learn how to organise yourself to efficiently manage de-centralized sales teams across foreign markets. Successful scale-ups combine a proven business case in their home market with early activities to expand internationally. Leading this segment is Bethany Ayers, ex-CCO and current COO of Peak. Recently rated as one of UK’s top 10 growth leaders in tech, Bethany has a track record of leading high-growth businesses in GTM strategy, rapidly scaling their sales organizations, delivering profitable partnerships and fundraising from VC’s.
  • Conscious fundraising: Learn to master the momentum behind partner-investors relationships, from timing to onboarding processes. When and why you step in with an investor highly impacts the company’s direction and decision-making process. In many cases investor discussions are held too early or too late. Jochen Boeykens, a feet-on-the-ground & serial triple exit entrepreneur (ex-Clarabridge), will lend us insights into sustainably achieving exit paths whilst gaining investors as well as the do’s and don’ts when fundraising.
  • Personal mindset: Are you aware of limiting behaviours, habits or beliefs? Thinking big is a necessity to achieve a company’s full potential. With over 20 years of experience in senior sales at several B2B tech companies, mind-set expert Mario Haneca (ex-Showpad) leads this segment, teaching us how to transform our way of thinking to make quantum leaps in everything we do.
