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

Nov 3, 2021

Virtual

About

Open-source software and cloud-native infrastructure have fundamentally revolutionized the modern IT stack—spanning data, security, DevOps and more. In fact, the past year saw organizations large and small rapidly move to adopt “open cloud” technologies to meet the demands of their increasingly digital businesses. At the Battery Ventures OpenCloud Summit, we’re 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!
