Join ARRtist SUMMIT to meet 400 high-profile B2B SaaS Founders, CxO and VPs and 100 B2B SaaS investors. Network with and learn from the most relevant community in B2B SaaS for DACH.
Date: 12 October 2023
Location: von Greifswald (Berlin-Mitte)
ARRtist SUMMIT is our annual, high-profile and invite-only networking conference where founders and CxOs meet each other and connect with investors.
ARRtist is the knowledge exchange platform for B2B SaaS founders, senior executives and investors.
We believe that a conference's value is mainly driven by the people you meet. A hand-crafted selection and multiple formats to connect ensuring you leave ARRtist Summit with high-value new contact as well as a smile because you refreshed existing ones.
Our goal is to provide you with the best content available on the German-speaking SaaS market, valuable insights from Founders and Investors, best practice playbooks, as well as learning from mistakes that save you time and money.
Founders of different stages have different challenges and needs. Therefore we will implement two main tracks on the event - the EARLY STAGE track, focusing on Pre Series A (<2 Mio ARR) ventures, and the GROWTH track, specializing in Post Series A or >2 Mio ARR companies. Clustering content, people, and formats will save you valuable time, give you an orientation and increase your output on ARRtist SUMMIT even more.
We all are stronger together than alone. Therefore ARRtist SUMMIT will be just one part of the new BERLIN SAAS WEEK happening 11th-13th of October. Stay tuned for various side events, special guests, and meeting the whole DACH SaaS ecosystem in Berlin these days.
In addition to the lectures and master classes, we invite you to directly exchange thoughts and network in various lounges and small group discussions - the mastermind sessions - in a relaxed and focused atmosphere. In a very comfortable, communicative, and interactive setting, the guests discuss based on practical entrepreneurial experience.

It’s a jam-packed day with lots of good content,
great people to meet. I’m especially looking forward to networking with lots of peers.
Ich mag kleine Konferenzen. Ich bin kein Riesen-Fan der mit tausenden Leuten in großen Hallen steht Und ich glaube einfach, dass hier die Qualität höher ist; Dass du mehr 1-zu-1 Gespräche hast.
Etwas spezifisch für B2B-SaaS zu haben für Deutschland ist gerade total relevant, Weil sich da so viel entwickelt und das hier es ein toller Ort ist - auch für Gründerinnen. Für mich ist immer das wichtigste - bei jeder Konferenz: 2-3 richtig gute, enge Kontakte aufzubauen. Und ich lieb’s auch wirklich mir Vorträge anzuhören und den ein oder anderen Snippet.
Ich bin großer Fan vom SaaStr Festival in San Francisco - und jetzt haben wir endlich etwas ähnliches hier in Berlin.
Julius, Jannis & Matthias organized outstandingly of you! Really good atmosphere, relaxed and personal - it was just great to be able to be there! And because the three of you are just clever too, you have already sent the early bird tickets for next year again 😅 I'll say "We'll definitely be there!
Great stuff Jannis, Julius and Matthias. It's been a very valuable event and a pleasure to participate in. Congrats on building it up from zero to sold out and on such a high-quality level!
