Success in the Cloud: The SaaS Business Model

More and more start-ups in Israel decide to leverage the cloud and offer their products or services as SaaS.

Fast market growth and adoption, small initial funding and short time to market, is what makes SaaS so attractive for start-ups.

But technology innovation is not where it stops. Also your business models has to be innovative!

The rise of SaaS brought a huge change in business models used, including go-to-market, pricing and marketing strategies.

Join Ariel Finkelstein for a discussion about what it takes to successfully run a SaaS company!
