SummerSaas is a pitching competition for seed-stage Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) startups founded in Eastern and Central Europe, Israel, Finland, and the Baltics. The event identifies the best seed firms and provides them with the opportunity to pitch to top-tier seed and late-stage funds.
The competition was created by Flashpoint, a venture capital firm that invests in late-seed and beyond software created by software companies. The alternative asset manager seeks out the talent and vision of tech entrepreneurs and combines it with its expertise and capital to help tech firms gradually improve. Flashpoint is well-known for its unwavering efforts to identify and invest in various tailored B2B solutions and B2C applications in the first round. Flashpoint has scheduled the third annual SummerSaaS Conference for this year.
Flashpoint has announced the date for the third annual SummerSaas Conference, which will take place on June 9, 2022. This year, eligible entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to meet with hundreds of venture capitalists and investors.

The competition is expected to be fierce but it will provide entrepreneurs with the opportunity to learn from one another. The event will also include panel discussions on current venture capital topics. This year’s event, according to Anton Fedorov, a partner at Flashpoint Venture Capital, is expected to be more enthusiastic and rewarding than previous ones. It will provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs to increase their visibility among investors and venture capitalists. Some of the key speakers at this year’s event are; Ran Tushia, David Kezerashvili, Jan Kobler and Enis Hulli.
SummerSaas 2022 will outperform previous events. Entrepreneurs running tech start-ups in Ukraine will have the opportunity to pitch for funds for the first time. If you fall into this category, now is the time to enjoy the novice development that will give you the opportunity to win the monetary prize your tech company requires. Even better, attendees will have the option of purchasing a paid ticket. If you prepare the winning pitch, you will also receive all of the proceeds from this special creation.
The third annual SummerSaas event is a one of a kind event that has gained fame and a reputation for connecting tech entrepreneurs with their appropriate investors. We anticipate that more start-up funders will increase their visibility through the event this year. Attendees must have a monthly recurring revenue of between $10,000 and $100,000, and/or have raised between $0.3 million and $3 million.
