Nick Mehta, CEO Gainsight + Jason Lemkin SaaStr: What We’re Doing Now. And How We Got Through ’08-’09.

NIck Mehta, CEO of Gainsight and I got on a Zoom with almost 1,000 SaaStr folks and talked about what we are seeing now, sales cycles, logo retention, and more.  As well as a deep dive on what happened during the last downturn.  It ended up I think, a pretty valuable and unique discussion.  Take a look and LMK your thoughts.  If these are helpful, we will do more.
