What is Business of Software Conference Europe 2019?

BoS Europe is a two-day event for software leaders, entrepreneurs and decision makers.

BoS targets those in the ‘scale up’ stage of their business – companies ready to take the leap into growth. The conference has an intimate atmosphere where guests are encouraged to come to learn from one another and help each other through their challenges, not shout or boast about personal achievements.

Despite being a software conference, the focus of the topics is neither code nor finance. You’ll hear talks from industry leaders on anything from marketing to leadership, hiring to mental health and everything in between. The result? You’ll leave with an idea of how to grow their business to the next level, and the contacts to make it happen.

BoS is a chance to spend time thinking about working ON, not, IN, your business. Expect to learn things, meet great people and have fun in the process.

Who is it for?

Founders, CEOs, CMOs, COOs, product managers, development managers – they all come and get something from BoS. If you are making decisions in a software business, regardless of how technical you are, BoS is for you: you won’t have to talk code to enjoy it (we certainly don’t!).

You might be venture-backed, you might be bootstrapped. You might be a sole trader just starting out, or a large and fast-growing organisation. Either way, if you feel you are still learning about what it takes to grow a great business, then BoS is for you.
