What is Business of Software Conference USA 2019?

Business of Software Conference is a 3-day single-track conference for Founders, CXOs, and Emerging Leaders in Software and SaaS companies, hosted at The Seaport Hotel & World Trade Center in Boston, MA. Over 3 days there are:

  • 13 1-hour sessions – 45-minute talks with time for Q&A. Each talk is given by an expert in their field with something valuable to say. Sponsors can never, ever pay their way onto the stage – BoS talks are renowned for their quality (judge for yourself – our vast library of talks is available here), and that’s the way it’s going to stay.
  • The legendary BoS Hallway Track. You’re in a room with 250 other Software leaders – people who do what you do, all of whom are looking to learn and pass on things that they’ve learned. The quality of the people you’ll meet is unrivalled, and the things you’ll learn from them will be as important as the things you learn in the sessions.
  • Opportunities to chat with Speakers. Not only is there ample time for Q&A after each session, Speakers stay for the whole conference – meaning you can grab them for a chat afterwards. You are as likely to sit next to a speaker at lunch than anyone else.

BoS is for businesses in the ‘scale-up’ stage – companies ready to take the leap into growth. The conference has an intimate atmosphere where guests are encouraged to come to learn from one another and help each other through their challenges, not shout or boast about personal achievements.

Despite being a software conference, the focus of the topics is neither code nor finance. You’ll hear talks from industry leaders on anything from marketing to leadership, hiring to mental health and everything in between. The result? You’ll leave with an idea of how to grow your business to the next level, and the contacts to make it happen.

BoS is a chance to spend time thinking about working ON, not, IN, your business. Expect to learn things, meet great people and have fun in the process.

Who is it for?

Founders, CEOs, CTOs, COOs, product managers, Directors – they all come and get something from BoS. If you are making decisions in a software business, regardless of how technical you are, BoS is for you: you won’t have to talk code to enjoy it (we certainly don’t!).

You might be venture-backed, you might be bootstrapped. You might be a sole trader just starting out, or a large and fast-growing organisation. Either way, if you feel you are still learning about what it takes to grow a great business, then BoS is for you.
