What SaaStr videos were folks most watching this week? Take a look at the best SaaStr sessions (that weren’t also a top session from last week). They are excellent. A free education from the best right at home:
#1. “From Burn-Out to $100M in ARR with Jason Cohen of WP Engine”. This SaaStr classic shares how Jason, a repeat founder, got to $100m ARR. And found a CEO to take the lead from the next stage.
#2. “Fundraising During a Pandemic with Point Nine Capital Managing Partner Christoph Janz”. This was our highest-rated session from the New New in Venture event, probably because Christoph gives super actionable advice on what SaaS VCs are really looking for right now.
#3: “Powering 30%+ of the Web: Lessons Learned from Automattic and WordPress”. Matt Mullenweg came to SaaStr to reflect on what it really means to build a platform for other apps.
#4: “How Does COVID-19 Change The Future of Work? with Basis Set Ventures”. Another great deep dive on seed investing today.
#5: “Anand Sanwal, CB Insights: Don’t Do These 68 Things in Your SaaS Company”. One of the crowd favorites from Anand at CB Insights.
#6: “What a Great VP of Product Really Does | SaaStr”. We put this classic session together a little while back to help explain to founders who haven’t hired one before what a great VP of Product really does, and why and when you need one.
#7: “Dustin Moskovitz, Asana: Fast Growth, Mindful Business“. A classic on how to build an enduring business and culture that will last from Dustin Moskovitz, Co-founder and CEO of Asana, and co-founder of Facebook.
#8: “How to Design a Sales Comp Plan to Get You to $100M”. Few things are more complicated in practice than getting a sales comp plan and sales incentives just right. A deep dive on how to do it here.
#9: “Jyoti Bansal and The AppDynamics Story: From Idea to $3.7B”. Jyoti is one of my very favorite Cloud founders. Amazing engineers that then become “scientists of sales” are a super powerful combination. Learn how Jyoti embraced enterprise sales to a huge outcome here:
#10: “Our best and worst marketing experiments” Lucidchart Co-Founder and CEO Karl Sun. This session was so compelling at SaaStr Europa that as word spread through the venue, folks streamed in 5 minutes in.
