We have a secret.

What if I told you there’s a gathering every year where your industry gets together? Where people talk, shake hands, close deals and have fun?

We’ve put on The Small Business Web Summit since 2011 to be that one place. It’s an private retreat where you will meet the partnership, marketing and development leaders of the companies selling cloud software to small businesses.

Do you make software as a service or mobile apps for small business?

Channels

Do you distribute cloud software to small businesses?

Resellers

Do you sell and service cloud software for small business?

Investors

Do you invest in B2B cloud software?

There’s only one way to get there.

Agenda

Stories from the trenches

We host The Summit twice a year to create a space just for us, the executives of the SMB cloud software industry.

It's a time to network, close deals, and most importantly, learn from each other how to reach this difficult market.

The theme this year? Our speakers are telling their stories of marketing to SMBs. Their personal ups and downs, successes and failures. It will be a unique, intimate experience to learn from the industry’s best.

Beyond Publishing: The Future of API Integration

The first evolution of APIs had us believing that it was all about publishing your own. In fact, publishing APIs has been done so effectively that developers and IT organizations are being overrun. Now we’re entering the next generation of API Management: API Consumption Management. Consumption is the process of integrating the APIs that we build, buy and use. In the session we will discuss how to consume APIs, and quite frankly discuss how to make the integrations you rely on, on a daily basis, suck less.
