While getting started on my second SaaS startup, I was intrigued with the monthly revenue and growth rate SaaS startups are able to reach within the first few months to the first year of operations. I went through several demo day pitches from the 500 Startups program and noted down some of my findings.
I am not trying to predict startup success here or anything else. I am only interested in early startup revenue and growth indicators that attract investors or validate that the company might be on the right path to success.
In summary, most SaaS startups were able to reach an impressive monthly revenue and growth rate with little or no funding. On average, SaaS startups were making $58,000 per month when pitching to investors with a monthly growth rate of 50%.
