SaaStr began in 2012 as a simple attempt via a WordPress blog together with a few answers on Quora to help share back Jason M. Lemkin’s learnings of going from $0 to $100m ARR with the next generation of great SaaS and B2B entrepreneurs.
It has since gone on to become perhaps the largest web community of SaaS founders and entrepreneurs, with over 750k views per month and 5 million+ views on Quora.
The core SaaStr long-form content first appears here on www.saastr.com, and then on Quora, as well as via syndication in Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Enterprise Irregulars, and other leading media. Forbes named SaaStr one of the Top 100 blogs for entrepreneurs, and Inc. named SaaStr one of The 50 Best Websites for Entrepreneurs.
SaaStr also consists of over 1,000 additional posts and answers on Quora, where Jason M. Lemkin is consistently one of the Top 3 most popular authors (and has twice been named a Top Writer). If you want me a lot more SaaStr content, also view us on Quora.
We also have SaaStr Social meet-ups every 4-6 months that draw hundreds of SaaS entrepreneurs together to talk all things recurring revenue:
- SaaStr New York Social: “Why You Need a Great VP Product“
- SaaS Spring Soiree: “How to Hire a Great VP Marketing with Marketo, EchoSign, Insightly“
- SaaStr: “How to Hire a Great VP Sales”
