Introducing the 2019 SaaStr
Superhero Awards

Honoring the achievements and innovations of emerging women in technology


Recognizing the Next Generation of Women Leaders

The tech industry is one of the most innovative and creative industries in the world, however, it falls behind almost every other industry when it comes to gender equality. Regardless of role or function, women in tech are often the minority. Women own only 5% of startups. In Silicon Valley, women hold only 11% of the executive roles. Only 25% of computing jobs are held by women. And those stats are just the beginning.

Despite these disturbing numbers, there are many amazing women who are breaking through the glass ceiling to deliver incredible results for their organizations, and we want to recognize their achievements.

The SaaStr Superhero Awards were created to identify new role models and mentors in tech by honoring the next generation of up-and-coming leaders. The Superhero Awards create a platform for emerging women in technology to be recognized and heard by their peers.

Nomination Guidelines

The SaaStr Superhero Awards are open for both peer and self nomination. To be considered for an award category, the nominee must:

  • Work at a B2B SaaS company

  • Have 10 years or less of professional experience

  • Must answer submission questions in either essay, Q&A, or video format

Judges will decide winners based on the thoughtfulness of a submission, so please be sure to add as much detail as possible — and be creative! There is no cost to nominate yourself or a colleague, so feel free to nominate more than one fearless female.

Plus, both the nominator and the nominee will get a free D&I ticket to SaaStr Annual 2019 (limit one per person).

The SaaStr Superhero Awards recognizes women leaders across a variety of functions within an organization.
