Atlassian’s Jay Simons to Keynote Venture Atlanta 2016

by Muriel Vega

If you were waiting to apply to Venture Atlanta‘s sure-to-be-amazing 2016 conference, we have a reason for you to apply right now.  Atlassian’s President Jay Simons is this year’s keynote. Yes, the man behind the $5 billion collaboration software company with no sales team.

Through his presentation, you will get a behind-the-scenes look into Atlassian‘s 2015 IPO, as one of the few companies to go public in the last year. His innovative perspective, including a high-velocity, low-touch sales model, was at the center of his company’s success.

“Jay is a unique executive who has helped build one of the most innovative software companies that exists today,” said Alex Estevez, venture partner at Accel Partners and also a Venture Atlanta board member. “His firsthand experience with Atlassian’s disruptive go-to-market model offers a rare window for entrepreneurs and venture capitalists to better understand this new approach to building great products and companies.”

The annual two-day Venture Atlanta showcase event will be held November 2-3 at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta. Join more than 900 technology entrepreneurs, investors and senior technology executives from across the country by applying here.
