The Past, Present, And Future of Subscriptions: A Decade In Review
It’s no secret that the subscription landscape has evolved. From traditional software-as-a-service and "product of the month" models to loyalty, memberships, and pay-as-you-go, consumers are demanding more choice than ever before when it comes to relationships with their favorite brands — and companies have awoken to the power of recurring revenue.
Join Krish Subramanian, Co-Founder and CEO of Chargebee, as he kicks off beelieve '24 with a look at Chargebee's own transformation from a SaaS startup serving SaaS startups to a global leader in revenue growth management. Hear what Krish has learned from more than a decade in the subscription industry, how those lessons have prepared us for the opportunities and headwinds ahead, and what's next from Chargebee to empower you to drive repeatable success at your organization.
