The 5th Annual Ascent Conference
NOVEMBER 14-15, 2022, NYC
The Ascent Annual Conference is a fully immersive 2-day SaaS conference for the Go-to-Market team. Entering our 5th year, we will be convening 1,500+ invite-only SaaS executives to enjoy peer-to-peer networking and content sessions led by some of the leading thought leaders in the SaaS space. CEOs, CMOs, CROs, and VPs of $20M or larger companies.
A note from our CEO
Ascent was just an idea that started on the back of a napkin like many other startups. The mission at first was to make it easier for CEOs and top VC Investors to connect. That mission would quickly evolve into arming the CEO with all the connections to grow his (or her) company, and that task of course required that we build a community for the whole C-Suite to connect.
That first conference in 2018 was thrown on a meager bootstrapped budget and had an overwhelming 1500 attendees. In 2019, we doubled in size by including members of the whole C-suite. COVID canceled our in-person events in 2020 and 2021 but it couldn’t hold back the spirit of our audience who have been consuming our virtual events in record numbers. Our latest function specific events (Spotlight Series) are where you can share insights with true peers with the exact same title as you. This event style was born out of requests from our sponsors. Our story has taken some exciting turns and we are excited to help all ambitious executives grow their companies and develop the connections that help solve problems.
