Survive and Thrive: How to Build a SaaS Business for Hyper-growth
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) has become one of the most game changing business trends, growing from next to nothing to a US$100-billion market in just 10 years.
For prospective entrepreneurs, the sector is an opportunity goldmine: but the path to SaaS success is not an easy one for up-and-coming independent software vendors (ISVs) or for established software companies moving to a SaaS model, and the early stages in any start-up’s life cycle are the most dangerous.
Most often, balancing vital growth factors of product development and customer success against the menial tasks of day-to-day operations are the most challenging for founders.
But rather than let mounting business management be a distraction, with the right insights and strategies, ISVs can rise to meet the challenge and carve their own mark on the global SaaS market.
This ARN and Reseller News Webinar event, held in partnership with rhipe, will set a roadmap for ISVs for crossing the chasm between early-stage start-up to major SaaS player, providing practical tips for maintaining exponential growth against mounting operational challenges.
Key areas of discussion will include:
- Opportunities for SaaS providers and ISVs in Australia and New Zealand
- Challenges for start-ups and scale-ups in the market
- Tips for managing business operations while scaling rapidly
- Building a mature business
- How to architect for global scale
