For Open-Source and Cloud-Native Software Entrepreneurs Creating the Next Generation of Modern Data, Security & IT Infrastructure Companies

Nov 3, 2022

San Francisco

About

Open-source software and cloud-native infrastructure have fundamentally revolutionized the modern IT stack—spanning developer tooling, data and machine learning, security, IT infrastructure and more.

 

Perhaps just as important as their impact on the enterprise is the open cloud’s ability to transform go-to-market models and growth efficiency at the companies developing these new bleeding-edge tools. As we face uncertain economic times, optimizing these motions for the greatest impact is even more important than ever.

 

At the Battery Ventures OpenCloud Summit, we’ll dive into leadership and operational advice for scaling your business and navigating the current economic environment. At this closed-door, invite-only event, we are bringing together pioneering, cloud-native companies, entrepreneurs leading hypergrowth startups, and the next generation of promising founders and CEOs. Our speakers will share best practices and lessons learned from their company-building journeys, as well as insights on serving the evolving enterprise-IT market today, including:

  • Building and rapidly innovating cloud-native solutions;

  • Developing engaging, viral communities of developers, data scientists and product practitioners;

  • Managing pay-as-you-go and annual, multi-year revenue streams that appeal to different market segments and buyer personas;

  • Turbo-charging go-to-market strategies leveraging cloud marketplaces and product-led, high-velocity sales motions; and

  • Leadership lessons around building high-performance teams that scale from conception to $100M and beyond

 

Our goal at the OpenCloud Summit is to foster the community of next-generation OpenCloud leaders by sharing hard-earned wisdom and war stories from the trenches.

 

We hope you can join us!
