ANNOUNCING: SAAS ACADEMY
Dear SaaS Founder,
Last year I launched an underground community for SaaS entrepreneurs just like you.
The results were amazing!
Within a few months of joining SaaS Academy, our members started seeing dramatic shifts in their business.
- One student had a 200%+ Increase in MRR (40K MRR – 130K MRR) in less than 10 months
- Most were locking down bigger deals and more frequently… with as much as a 10x bump in their conversion rates.
- Many students were able to reduce churn by as much as 50% by implementing my proven systems for identifying “at risk” accounts, and having a “customer success” system in place to save them.
Because of these major breakthroughs, my SaaS Academy students were reduced day-to-day chaos in their companies.
They built more systems, so their teams were stronger.
Most of all, most of the SaaS Academy students had a better quality of life!
With new systems in place, founders who joined SaaS Academy ended up losing weight and working less. Many of them said they dropped bucketloads of stress they didn’t even know they were carrying.
The whole point of growing your business is to become financially free so you can spend MORE time with the people you care about.
But so often, what happens is the opposite. And you’re forced to sell your family short.
Well, not any more!
I’ll tell you more about how they did it (and how they increased revenues, profit margins, and reduced churn) in a second.
But first, you should know a little bit about me and why I’m actually qualified to teach you.
We had 6 weeks of cash runway left to operate. Now we’re among the top 50 fastest growing companies in Canada.Through Dan, I realized that my business was in some pretty dire straits. I wasn’t measuring the right financial pictures, what our burn rate was, or some of the risks that we were exposed to. I discovered we had 6 weeks of cash runway left to operate. Two core pieces of advice Dan gave me was to cut deep – so that we could survive – and get real about the numbers – so we could make proper decisions. With this advice, we managed to turn it all around and became one of the 50 fastest growing companies in Canada and part of the Startup 50 list. All of that can be directly attributed Dan’s advice and I’m very very grateful for that.

WANT TO JOIN SAAS ACADEMY?
At SaaS Academy, I work with SaaS companies that need to reach the next level in attracting and converting leads, expanding their customer base, and increasing revenues.
Let me tell you what this program is all about…
ARE YOU GENERATING AT LEAST $10K IN MRR?
My program requires that you be generating at least 10k in MRR proving you have product/market fit.
It’s a telling milestone of your progress to date.
A clear signal that you’re ready to achieve 300% ROI over the next 6-months inside the program.
And a litmus test of the things, that as a founder, you’ve already proven yourself capable of doing.
From a 5% Conversion Rate to a 50% Conversion Rate in just 4 weeks!Dan gave us a compass to focus our business. It’s transformed every part of the team, given us more more direction, more confidence, and it’s been very motivating. Having Dan give us direction helped us solve our sales conversion process. We had a low conversion rate. When we got a lead, we had a 5% conversion rate to a paying customer. Now once we get to our demo, it’s gone up to a 40-50% conversion rate. That’s a profound change, and it didn’t take long. Before that, we’d tried hundreds of ideas and spent 2 years trying to get it right. With Dan giving us direction, we got there in 4 weeks! That direction, intensity and focus is just vital to growing in SaaS.

AN IDEAL SAAS ACADEMY STUDENT
MEETS THE FOLLOWING CRITERIA:
First and foremost, you need to have a SaaS product in your market and publicly launched. Your product may not be perfect, yet — and you may still have many iterations to go before you’re happy with it. But it must solve a REAL problem in a unique/differentiated way.
The market has voted with their dollars. Even if you’re in your early stages and have a ton if untapped potential… dollars are changing hands. You’re just ready for those checks to get bigger — and the exchanges to be more frequent.
3Technical Skills On Board
You might not be technical yourself (most SaaS Academy members aren’t)… but you either have the in-house dev team or a technical co-founder making sure your important iterations are getting DONE and your vision is being executed upon with speed and precision.
This isn’t a “side hustle” or a weekend hobby you picked up so that you can can add “CEO” to your LinkedIn handle. Even if you’re still working a full time gig, your startup is your top priority — and you’re willing to do whatever it takes to see it reach its full potential THIS year.
You’re not gonna do things because “Dan told you to do it”.
YES, I’m gonna pinpoint exactly what must be done for your SaaS company to grow
YES, I’m gonna tell you exactly how to do it.
But at the end of the day, you’re ready to take FULL ownership of your decisions and step into the leader your team requires of you.
6Embraced the "JFDI" Ethos
Just. F*cking. Do. It.
You’ve had every opportunity to quit. To throw in the towel. To crawl back into some cushy hole and hit “eject” on this whole software thing.
But instead you’ve strapped in.
And gone full throttle despite the naysayers telling you to slow down.
You have big goals.
Goals that make others flinch.
Goals that even you lose sleep over.
But goals you’re pumped to work towards with someone who’s already hit them and lived to tell the tale.
If you meet the above criteria, you’re invited to apply for a spot in the next SaaS Academy class.
