BoS Conference: Fall 2021

300 attendees max.

Learn how great software companies are run. 

A three-day online conference that puts you in touch with world leaders in delivering sessions and talks on growth strategy, product management, company culture, and leadership.

Spend quality time with fellow software entrepreneurs working through some of the same challenges we all face right now.

Speakers to Meet & Learn From

BoS Conferences not only feature great speakers with unique stories — they're also speakers who'll participate in the breakout and networking sessions.

We're excited to share with you the first batch of session leaders and speakers below!

Networking and Breakouts

10 Interactive Sessions

Our absolute priority is you have the opportunity to meet & talk to attendees & speakers.

The community is an integral part of the BoS Conference experience — it’s no different online. We encourage honest discussion & active listening; not a bravado-filled, empty business card exchange.

There are 4 ways to connect with other attendees:

  • Coffee Line Chats
    More than chance encounters with interesting people. Choose the conversations you join by topic or opt for some chance encounters.
  • Group Exercises
    Puzzle over difficult questions with other smart entrepreneurs (and get to know them in the process).
  • Topic-Focused Breakouts
    Interactive sessions led by experts covering growth strategy, product management, company culture, leadership, & more.
  • Slack
    Organise your own breakout discussions, individually message other attendees, & share cat pictures.
