Four Primary Tracks

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 now the largest gathering of early stage investors on the East Coast, all fighting over the 300+ startups exhibiting and pitching. So, we’re adding a whole new track for the 2019 event with a heavy focus on networking with LPs, angels, and fellow investors in addition to investor-only roundtables, and a stage curated specifically for investment strategy.

Growth & Marketing

All marketers, and founders, will be swimming to the front row at the Growth Stage 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.
