Dovetail X founders Kate and Simon are returning to San Francisco in February for SaaStr, a major tech conference for SaaS start-ups and eagle-eyed VC's, where there'll be lots of tight talk about $100m ARR, pre-money valuations, cocktails and free merch. Dovetail X is attending with the considerable help and support of Callaghan Innovation. Dovetail X will be in good company with a great bunch of Kiwi tech start-ups and legends. We'll be in San Francisco and Silicon Valley for two weeks paving the way for the market debut of Dovetail X.

San Francisco-based Kiwi Landing Pad gave a nice shout-out for 11 Kiwi companies to watch, including Dovetail X in their end-of-year wrap-up.
