What is this about?

We're building the market for distribution of cloud software.

Cloud software is a network.

That's why it's powerful.

The future of software is cloud software. That's not because it's cheap, or it's easily discovered, or because it's easier to use.

It's because cloud software is connected together.

Each application is part of the network of software. Every new application adds to the network's power.

We are the association of cloud software partnership leaders.

We strive to build the market for distribution of cloud software.

Our 2000+ members span the industry. They are SaaS vendors, platforms, API services, resellers, distributors, and investors.

It's time for you to join.

Where did we come from?

The Small Business Web

The Cloud Software Association started in 2009 as The Small Business Web, the trade association for companies selling cloud-based software for small businesses. In 2017, we rebranded and repositioned to reflect the truth about our membership: we sell cloud software to all kinds of customers.

gSocial

In 2014, the gSocial Conference, the conference organized by, for, and with the Google Apps reseller community, joined The Small Business Web. This brought together the cloud software vendors and cloud software resellers into one organization. Together, we have worked hard to build channel distribution.
