Hey !

The 2024 State of Independent SaaS Survey is now live! 

We are back with the fourth edition of the State of Independent SaaS Survey, the most comprehensive look at the state of bootstrapped and mostly bootstrapped SaaS founders. 

By completing this year’s benchmark survey, you’d be doing me (and all B2B SaaS founders competing with venture-backed companies) a huge favor. 

Take Me To the Survey!

To say that the SaaS building community landscape has changed since we launched the first edition of the survey and report would be an understatement.

The 2024 State of Independent SaaS Survey will explore some of the themes we have looked at in the past but will also look at successful tech stacks, hiring, and operations. 

This year, we are partnering with the incomparable folks at DemandMaven to analyze and produce the report - which we will release in April. 

DemandMaven helps SaaS and internet-based companies find growth opportunities, troubleshoot their growth, and successfully go-to-market. They get founders and CEOs — VC-funded and bootstrapped — to the next growth stage by helping them identify their biggest strategic growth blockers, focus their efforts on their best-paying customers through customer research, and build growth engines that work for years, not weeks.

Click Here to Begin the Survey

Once the survey results are in, we’ll take the insights from that data and create the State of Independent SaaS Report, which will:

  • Capture a year-to-year snapshot of independently funded SaaS baselines for churn, MRR, growth rate, visitor-to-trial conversions, Lifetime Customer Values, NPS, and more.
  • Identify marketing, hiring, and pricing trends and their direct impacts on growth potential.
  • Highlight any cautionary tales in guru-influenced strategies that might not translate to other entrepreneurial experiences.
  • Create recommendations and best practices in B2B SaaS growth strategies. 

✅ Should I take the survey?

If you are the founder of a SaaS (or subscription software) company currently operating and generating at least $1/month in revenue, we need you to complete the survey! 

The more data we can pull together, the higher quality insights and recommendations we can create.

🙈Is it anonymous?

The survey is anonymous, and the report will only include aggregate data. 

⏰ How long will it take?

The survey is mobile-friendly, has about 55 questions, and should take less than 15 minutes (for most, it’s 7-8 minutes).
