Battery Events
OpenCloud is Battery’s annual summit for open-source and cloud-native software entrepreneurs creating the next generation of modern data, security & IT infrastructure companies.
Open-source software and cloud-native infrastructure have fundamentally revolutionized the modern IT stack—spanning data, security, DevOps and more. In fact, due to the massive dislocation created by the 2020 Covid-19 crisis and the urgent need for modern, digital architectures, many of these innovative “OpenCloud” companies have seen their businesses accelerate as organizations large and small move to rapidly modernize their businesses.

​At Battery’s annual OpenCloud Summit, we bring together pioneering, cloud-native companies, entrepreneurs leading hypergrowth startups, and the next generation of promising founders and CEOs to discuss company-building in the ever evolving enterprise-IT market.

Past speakers have included: Felix Van de Maele, Co-Founder & CEO, Collibra*; Ali Ghodsi, CEO & Co-Founder, Databricks*; Erica Brescia, COO, GitHub; Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud; Amit Bendov, Co-Founder & CEO, Gong*; Evan Kaplan, CEO, InfluxData*; Sohaib Abbasi, Former CEO Informatica and Board Member at McAfee, New Relic & RedHat; Shlomi Ben Haim, Co-Founder & CEO, JFrog*; Edith Harbaugh, Co-Founder & CEO, LaunchDarkly; Sahir Azam, Chief Product Officer, MongoDB; Sanjay Beri, Founder & CEO, Netskope; Gus Robertson, CEO, NGINX; Abhinav Asthana, Co-Founder & CEO, Postman; Yvonne Wassenaar, CEO, Puppet; Paul Cormier, CEO, RedHat; and Ramin Sayar, President & CEO, Sumo Logic*.
