Description

Join us for a Lunch & Learn with Tom Rhoades, Head of Finance & Strategy APAC of Salesforce, on the numbers behind the SaaS Business Model

18 years ago Salesforce pioneered cloud computing when CEO & Founder Marc Benioff set out to make enterprise software as easy to use as buying a book on Amazon. Salesforce has since become the 4th largest software company on the planet and for many the blueprint on how to build a high growth SaaS company. A key part of this blueprint is the SaaS business model.


In this lunch & learn session Tom will explore the fundamentals of this model, including P&L, Balance Sheet & Cash Flow, and Long Term Economics. He will provide valuable insights for any SaaS business founder/CEO.
