Portland SaaS Founders - Customer Acquisition Strategies for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

Acquiring customers for our SaaS companies is arguably one of the most difficult challenges we face. We need to figure it out what works and what doesn't work, and we need to do it before the money runs out.


In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• The marketing strategies that are working for us, and the ones that didn't.


• Lessons we learned taking our products to market.

• Paid vs organic marketing channels: which ones are best for every stage of growth.

• How we've identified our most profitable market segments and how we're providing value to them.


• Social media, search engine marketing, PR and advertising. Pros and cons of each channel, and which ones are right for us.


Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!

PDX Women in Tech (PDXWIT) Happy Hour Networking Event
Urban Studio

** Please RSVP on Eventbrite HERE **

Join us for happy hour at Urban Studio, sponsored by Lyft and in partnership with Tech Ladies!

As a woman-focused community, we’ve decided it is no longer enough for our support of other underrepresented groups to be implied. This month, we’ve decided it is time to focus on the interconnectedness of the various social categorizations and dedicate the theme of this event to “Intersectionality,” with a conversation starter of “What’s a recent book, writer or film that has changed your perspective?”

While the event is primarily intended for networking, we will have a short segment at 5:30 to share important announcements and showcase two women from Lyft!

Introduction to Lyft, including what they do and what job opportunities are available!

Lita Cho, Senior Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk to us about how intersectionality has been woven into the company’s diversity and inclusion efforts.

Janani Sundarrajan, Software Engineer at Lyft, will talk about Lyft’s progressive Gender Inclusion and Affirmation policy which was recently released.

During the event, we’ll have an Activity Table where people can get creative. This is a fantastic way to meet others if large groups are not your thing. If you have trouble finding it, look forMeg Aul, our Event Activities Director.

Portland SaaS Founders - Developing high functioning software teams for SaaS
US Custom House / WeWork

We're all faced with the challenge of creating an awesome software product for our customers. A big part of this is having a highly functional software development team.  

In this Meetup we'll discuss:

• When to develop software in-house versus outsourcing or partnering with another software platform. Some SaaS companies utilize a mix of in-house and outsourced developers. We'll brainstorm various possible approaches.

• How do you train new developers?  What approaches have been successful and what has been a dismal failure? - Does it make sense to hire senior developers only or a mix of junior and senior developers?

• Team / project organization - Do you do daily standups? How do your organize sprints? How are deadlines established and by whom? Is your team in the same office or are some remote? What tools do you use (Slack, Trello, etc.)? With all of the bugs, feature requests, UI overhauls, when do you ship updates to the product?

• Communication and transparency - How do you speak to the rest of the team in a language everyone understands? Do you hold weekly/bi-weekly meetings to announce progress? How do you showcase new features to clients?

Coffee, tea and draft beer will be provided. Come hang out with other SaaS founders and share your story!


If there's more on this topic you would like to discuss, send us a message and we'll try and get it added to the agenda.
