2nd Annual SAAS NORTH Fund Applications are Now Open
We are thrilled to Announce that the 2nd Annual SAAS NORTH Fund Applications are Now Open
At SAAS NORTH we are committed to making our conference more accessible to a broader range of SaaS entrepreneurs and their teams. In the spirit of moving toward accessibility across the dimensions of diversity, age, gender and ethnicity, we are proud to announce that the 2nd Annual SAAS NORTH Fund call for applications is now open.
This fund is designed to help eliminate economic barriers for groups to attend SAAS NORTH. We’re grateful that Shopify is helping us bring this program to life for the 2nd year. The fund will be used to cover costs associated with accommodation, travel and conference fees for selected applicants.
Diversity and inclusion are central to how we approach building and delivering an impactful conference. For example, in 2018, our roster of female speakers grew to 46% from the previous year’s 30%. A significant jump which was the result of a highly committed Steering Committee, along with many partners and supporters who helped us identify the best, most qualified industry leaders from some of the most formidable SaaS companies globally. It is worth noting that all of our past speakers, not just women, represent a broad range of cultures, nationalities, gender and age. We believe that if you can relate to who is in our program and what subject matter is being covered, we can connect with a more diverse audience. The SAAS NORTH Fund is part of making that happen.
As SAAS NORTH continues to galvanize the tech community in Canada by building the best program to help SaaS companies scale, we feel it is our responsibility to make sure that we are tackling the issues that founders and their teams face daily.
