Check out who’s coming to TC Sessions: SaaS 2021 – TechCrunch


On October 27, less than two fast-moving months away, we’re hosting TC Sessions: SaaS 2021, our first event focused exclusively on the software-as-a-service ecosystem. SaaS — the de facto business model for B2B and B2C startups and enterprises alike — shows no sign of slowing down.

This is a prime opportunity to hear and learn from the industry’s major players, thought leaders, and, frankly, some of the most extraordinary creators around the globe. It’s more than just listening — engaging with speakers during Q&As and networking with founders, CEOs, and investors from major companies.
