Building a SaaS business

Software as a service, or SaaS, is a software delivery model that hosts business applications—such as customer relationship management (CRM) services, human resources management services, content management systems (CMS) or accounting services—on the cloud (in most cases, on the internet). By using cloud computing to deliver these virtual services, customers reduce costs normally associated with hosting data on physical servers and machines. SaaS has grown significantly within the last few years due to both consumers’ and businesses’ insatiable appetites for easy access to and consumption of online data.

 
To explore this emerging market and bring prominent startups delivering their services using SaaS model, Headstart Ahmedabad along with eChai is organizing session on "Building a SaaS business". Do join-in and be part of most exciting conversations along with other entrepreneurs of the city.
