Join a community of entrepreneurs and experts building great software companies.

Over a 2 day online conference, take part in interactive discussions with world leaders in growth strategy, product management, company culture, leadership, and more in our energizing new format, and spend quality time with fellow software people working through some of the same challenges we all face right now.

BoS Conf Online.Spring is an event you partake in, not a stream you watch. Come prepared to discuss, learn, and connect with your people. The past year has stolen a lot from us – but here you’ll have space to step back, reflect, learn, and connect with your peers.

Tuesday 27th April – 7:30am-3pm ET /12:30-20:00 BST

BoS Conf Online.Spring Community

Untitled design (23)

BoS Conf Online is designed to put the community at the heart of the event. Energising community is an integral part of the BoS Conference experience, and it’s no different online. We encourage honest discussions and listening – not a bravado-filled, empty business card exchange. Our absolute priority is that you have the opportunity to meet and chat with fellow attendees.

Having thought very carefully about how to make BoS-style networking happen at a virtual event, there will be 4 different ways of connecting with other attendees:

  • “Coffee Queue” Chats – chance encounters with interesting people.
  • Group Exercises – puzzle over difficult questions with other smart entrepreneurs.
  • Topic-Focused Breakout Discussions – meet other attendees interested in the same topics as you.
  • Slack – organise your own breakout discussions, individually message other attendees, and share cat pictures.
