6 Key SaaS Business Metrics: The Data that Drives Investors

Earlier this month, our CEO Rob Nelson participated in a joint webinar with Lighter Capital CEO BJ Lackland. They discussed the metrics and KPIs you should focus on when seeking funding and on a regular basis to help your company succeed.
