Hey Hunters! Over the past 30 months or so, I've interviewed over 1000 B2B SaaS CEO’s and asked them to share datapoint like: - ARR (Annual recurring revenue) - CAC (customer acquisition cost - fully weighted) - ARPU (average revenue per user per month) - LTV (lifetime value) - Churn (Logo and Revenue) - Payback period (w/ gross margin multiplier included) I published some of these interviews on my podcast, The Top Entrepreneurs but many of you started asking for a way to “search” the episodes by metrics like: - Growth - Company age - Industry - Revenue So Charlie and I decided to build a tool that tags all of the data, puts it in a big spreadsheet at, and allows you to search. Today, we’re publishing this report which compares Dec 2016 ARR with Dec 2017 ARR to measure growth rates of these public B2B SaaS companies. In the report, you can choose to look at growth rates by company size (so smaller companies don’t monopolize rankings, $1 to $2 is 100% growth!): - More than $100k in ARR - More than $1m in ARR - More than $10m in ARR Additionally if you click on a company you are curious about, you’ll see full company page with unit economics, revenue per employee, and other unique metrics. Here’s the key: All the data points are clickable. When you click them, we’ll jump to the part of the recorded interview where the CEO revealed that data point so you know its coming straight from them. No other data source was used in the creation of this report other than the CEO’s mouth, and then a followup email we sent to all the CEO’s confirming the ARR (Screenshot above).

@nathanlatka @nathanlatka You might want to reconfigure your Intercom settings... it's sort of spammy (e.g. I got the message "just spoke with bootstrapped CEO consider a raise or sale (hes doing $12m+ in ARR)."... not sure why you'd want to push that in a chat message, but it dissuades me from signing up).

@mike_seekwell weird.. where/what screen did you see that on?
Mike@mike_seekwell ·
@nathanlatka Seems like it's on every page

@nathanlatka By the way, signed up anyway to hear the interview with Looker's CEO. You're great at this man, keep it up. It's incredible you're able to get these interviews and the level of transparency you pull out.

Required signup just to take a look... :(
Nathan LatkaMaker@nathanlatka
@daviswbaer i changed my mind here - going to remove this signup alltogether. give me a bit to update code!
Nathan LatkaMaker@nathanlatka
@daviswbaer the signup pop-up has been removed. everyone can view the entire report now without having to put in name and email.

@daviswbaer @nathanlatka Doesn't seem to be the case — did you reintroduce the sign-in requirement?
Nathan LatkaMaker@nathanlatka
@daviswbaer @thecoppinger nope. you can see this report without setting up a username. once you dive deeper into the database (company pages for example), then you'll have to create a username.

As an outsider looking in on the big names in Saas, it's hard to distinguish between bluster and hard data. This tool makes it pretty easy. I just spent 2+ hours scrolling through this list and learning about the companies in a position to succeed over the next few years.

Great curation, I regularly check on the website and definitely open and read the newsletter I receive from GetLatka It's almost like truth from horse's mouth directly.
Nathan LatkaMaker@nathanlatka
@saravanamv thanks Saravana! Are you competing w/ docusign, rightsignature, etc?
Saravana KumarPro@saravanamv · Founder: Document360 + 3 other products
@nathanlatka no, we are going to compete with knowledge base side of ZenDesk, Intercom, Helpscot etc. We feel that market is currently dominated by help desk providers and they do not give the same importance ( they focus on ticketing/messaging/chat etc) and pretty much all of them are basic. We wanted to create a "Knowledge base offering focused on SaaS products" addressing limitations like versioning, backup, team collaboration etc.
