Startups are trendy and when you’re in that business, you get tons of super cool trade show, meet-up, chill-out invitations every week in your mailbox.
These events all seem interesting, the only problem is that they take time. If you RSVP positively to all of them there’s only 2 options -
- you don’t have to work for a living (good for you 🎉),
- you’re not doing what you have to do (not so good 👿).
Standing out from the crowd is B2B Rocks, the leading European conference for B2B and SaaS startups. At eFounders, we love it for 3 very good reasons.
Sometimes, we’re so focused on making our startup the next big thing that we forget to take a step back. At B2B Rocks, for a whole day, we got to learn from great speakers and inspiring talks on all the topics that matter when you are an entrepreneur, like:
Latest trends and the future of design in SaaS, as presented by our very own & wonderful Didier Forest 💚
-> Many more inspiring talks to be discovered on Twitter: #B2Brocks.
2. Tips & Tricks

That’s not the best part yet. Getting all together for an after event “Par-tay” to enjoy the wonderful Parisian weather (joking) was definitely the most fun. ☀️ 🎉
(don’t be jealous, we’ll send you an invite next year 😉 )
If you can’t wait until 2017’s edition you can always get on a plane to Sydney in October:
