Ok we’ve had a great time in the Big Apple so far. Last week, we gave a great keynote at the Enterprise Tech Meet-up on How to Hire a Great VP of Sales. We’ll put the video up soon. And next week, together with Work-Bench, NYC’s leading Enterprise Growth Accelerator, we’ll have our first SaaStr Social outside of Menlo Park … right at Work-Bench’s super slick space on Fifth Avenue. (110 Fifth Avenue). Building on the terrific SaaStr Soiree we did last time on marketing, with Jon Miller, co-founder and VP of Marketing at Marketo, and Brendon Cassidy and Loretta Jones, previously VP of Sales and Marketing at EchoSign … we’re tackling an equally important topic this time … Why You Need a Great VP of Product. We’ll start off at 6pm with a tag team of (x) one of the best VPs of Product I’ve ever known, Jon Stross, co-founder of hot NYC SaaS start-up Greenhouse.io, and (y) his co-founder and CEO of Greenhouse, Dan Chiat. They’re an incredible team doing millions in recurring revenue and we’ll learn together about how a CEO works with a VP Product; when to hire one; the difference between good and great; ways to divide-and-conquer; and much more. And then we’ll have some cocktails and talk all things Recurring Revenue, as usual! Sign up here.
