The goal of the Freemium SF Bay Area Meetup Group is to expand, illuminate, educate and foster relationships in the Freemium/Premium pricing arena. We focus on mobile application and software as a service (SaaS) businesses. Top quality speakers share business model and pricing experiences with entrepreneurs, developers and service providers.
If you've attended our Meetup, please fill out our attendee questionnaire, if you haven't done so. For those who have filled it out, thank you. Our survey to date tells us people come to the Meetup, first to make new business contacts and secondly to learn from the mistakes of others.
