Recently, I attended SaaStr Annual 2018 claimed to be the biggest SaaS event on the planet Earth. With over 10k participants and three days full of sessions it might as well be. It was rather crowded, to be honest, but some of the sessions were really inspiring.
I tried to summarize some highlights on culture, product and success for SaaS businesses in a brief presentation saastr_2018Some of my personal notes below 😉
Wanna do something tasty and fancy in SF without putting on weight? Try a walking chocolate tour! You’ll visit the best chocolate spots in SF, get high on chocolate in under 2 hours, and stay happy for the rest of the day. Check out Groupon for some good deals (regular price was 65 bucks, bit we got it for 18) and don’t forget a bottle of water! With all the sweets you will definitely need one. When to start shopping? Well, you can buy a little bit of everything at each stop, or wait till the last one (if you can) and then make up your chocolate mind 🙂
For a chocolate lover like me this was the best birthday present.
Saturday morning. I woke up to the grey and dreary view in the window. My first intention was to crawl back under the covers and stay in bed all day. But the I thought: “Wow, my first rain in over 4 months in SF! ” I dragged myself out of the house and onto the wet streets.
Mid of August, but summer hasn’t started yet. Foggy and grey Saturday morning in SF… Looking for some fun and bright colors, I headed to the most cheerful and colorful neighborhood of the city on a walking tour around Castro with San Francisco Walking Tours. Not only had I a good time walking around, but I picked up a couple of fun facts and learned something new 🙂
2013 was the year of many changes. For me one of the biggest changes was an upcoming business trip for 3 months in SF. With Stanfy we had opened an office there just less than a year ago and it was my turn to go across the ocean to represent our company and find many new wealthy clients. Challenge accepted!
America. Silicon Valley. Tech. Startups. Meetups. Networking. Clients. Contracts. There was so much of new stuff, so many new people and new impressions. I hope I’ll still share some of them later. However, what truly stroke me the most were not the huge American portions of food, extremely ambitious young entrepreneurs or the big city rush. It was the city itself. You can go around the world, but you will find no place like San Francisco.
