Survey Says: More Co-Founders Can Lead to Faster Growth + Mitigating Platform Risk w/ Shar Darafsheh

The State of Independent SaaS Survey results point to a correlation between more co-founders + faster growth. https://microconfonair.com Shar Darafsheh is one of the 5 co-founders of Servicebot.io, a fast growing UI toolkit built on top of Stripe Billing. In this episode, we're going to explore the validity of the first State of Independent Report (stateofindependentsaas.com) that points to a direct connection between the number of co-founders working on your SaaS and the rate of growth you're able to achieve. We also explore the platform risks that are associated with building a business around the infrastructure of another product - what considerations you need to make when deciding to create a business in that structure, and what assumptions you need to make about platform risk in order to overcome those hurdles. The first ever SaaS Podcast Awards are now accepting nominations. Head over to saaspodcastawards.com and let us know your favorite shows, episodes, host(s) and stories SaaS Focused podcast.
