Dan Martell of SaaS Academy


Today, I’m talking with Dan Martell, a 5x founder with 3 exits and currently a coach to high-performing SaaS founders, through The SaaS Academy.

Dan knows what it’s like growing a SaaS company and how hard it can be to answer all the questions that I’m trying to address with this podcast. Questions like…

  • Who should I be hiring next quarter?
  • How do I build a productive sales process?
  • What types of things should I be looking for from a CTO?
  • How should I be leading my team?

Over time, he found the right mentors, books, and advice to build up a bank of knowledge that he’s refined through years of experience in the trenches. Now he shares that knowledge with his students in the SaaS Academy.

In our chat, we talk about Dan’s framework for building a SaaS business, what the biggest levers are for fast growth, and where founders often get tripped up.

This is a wide-ranging, high-energy chat that you don’t want to miss.
