The Best Online Communities for SaaS Founders
Building, launching, and growing your SaaS can be a lonely journey. Especially if you don’t live in a tech hub like San Francisco.
So what are some online communities that SaaS founders and professionals can join to exchange ideas, get feedback, and learn from each other?
In this post, I’ve compiled the most active online communities where you can connect and interact with the SaaS community. And don’t worry, none of these are promotional blog post graveyards.
1. SaaS Growth Hacks Facebook Group
With over a 1000 members and growing very quickly, this Facebook group is a great place to ask questions, get feedback, and connect with other SaaS CEOs and professionals.
Members are friendly and conversations are encouraged. It’s a closed Facebook group so request access and cross your fingers!
2. SaaS Alliance Slack Channel
A Slack channel dedicated to SaaS founders and professionals, SaaS Alliance boasts over 800 members from SaaS companies like ChartMogul, Survicate, and GetResponse.
As an invite-only community, you need to fill out a short application form and get approved to become a member.
3. SaaS Founders Club Slack Channel
A Slack channel for SaaS founders only, this global community was made to “share our passion and knowledge for SaaS and become better by learning from each other,” according to their website.
Just like SaaS Alliance, you’ll have to fill out a short application and get approved to become a member.
4. SaaS & Product Marketing Inbound Group
Though not very active by any means, when anyone asks a question, this group is eager to help you out.
If you’re an Inbound member, be sure to join this small group of SaaS professionals.
5. /r/Startups Subreddit
While not completely focused on SaaS, this group attracts a large number of SaaS founders and marketers. More so than the /r/SaaS subreddit.
With over 120,000 members, folks like to ask questions, share struggles, and ask for recommendations. Links to blog posts are strictly monitored so you can be sure that discussions are the focus of this group.
