With literally 100s of incredible SaaStr sessions and videos uploaded since Covid hit, it’s time to catch up on the Best SaaStr Sessions!
What are The Top 10 This week?
#1: “On Launching a Second Product with Dharmesh Shah, CTO / Co-Founder Hubspot”. An incredible catch-up session with Dharmesh from this week,
#2: “Churn is dead. Long live Net Dollar Retention Rate with Dave Kellogg”. A profoundly insightful session on churn from SaaStr Annual 2020 at Home.
#3: “Where Product Development is Going in 2021 with Nick Mehta, CEO of Gainsight”. Another hot take on launching a second product line. A great compare-and-contrast with the Hubspot discussion above on their second core product.
#4: “The 5 things that kill startups after their seed rounds with Michael Seibel, CEO of Y Combinator”. This session from SaaStr Annual 2020 was so good, the office shut down and just watched it.
#5: “From Burn-Out to $100M in ARR with Jason Cohen of WP Engine”. A SaaStr classic that is maybe even more relevant now.
#6: “The Cadence: How to Turn Your SaaS Startup into an Army” with Craft Ventures General Partner David Sacks. Another I personally think about a lot. How not to burn out the troops, but still do amazing things.
#7: “The Secrets to How Flodesk Bootstrapped to $5M ARR in Less than a Year”. This was one of those “surprise” sessions from SaaStr Annual 2020 that I didn’t know much about … but ended up performing really, really well. Bootstrappers especially, watch!
#8: “Dustin Moskovitz, Asana: Fast Growth, Mindful Business”. On the heels of Asana’s IPO, a great look back at how they really got there.
#9: “Going from $0 to $60M ARR in 4 Years with Podium CEO Eric Rea.” A great deep dive.
#10: “What Being a Founder Taught Me About Leadership – Lessons from GitHub’s COO”. Ok this was another session that just shut down the office. The points Erica makes themselves aren’t profound. But the lessons she shares, and how she helps you think about them — are. Watch this one.
