Event details


Ascent is a 2-day conference focused on bringing together senior leaders in the East Coast tech community to learn, collaborate, and build the relationships needed to spearhead meaningful change. We’ve curated an experience that the industry needs, focused on education and networking that will help accelerate innovation.

Startup Grad School

Your 2 Day MBA

All the most important parts of entrepreneurship: In-depth best practices on finances & accounting, legal, recruiting, raising capital, sales, and much more.

VC & Investing

Ascent is the largest gathering of VC & Angels on the East Coast. We've carved out an entire track devoted to networking with fellow investors & LPs, in addition to an investor-only lounge, party, and stage focused on topics related to investment strategy.

Growth & Marketing

All marketers and founders will be swimming to the front row during the Growth & Marketing track talks to learn from the world’s brightest minds in marketing, sales, and overall business growth practices.


SaaS companies were our largest demographic at Ascent 2018. So we’re bringing a full track devoted to SaaS-based content, from tactics to land your first 10 enterprise customers, to discussions on the biggest emerging opportunities in software services.
