    In this article that has become a must-read for SaaS enterprise-software startup founders, Battery Ventures VC Neeraj Agrawal explains in a short but insightful manner how successful startups in this field have made it to unicorn status.

    Remember that only a very small number of companies manage to reach such growth.

    There are at least two takeaways here in our view:

    1/ The key to success lies in human resources (and processes)

    2/ You need a model that truly scales to reach such impressive growth rates

    Interesting read – would a SaaS-focused VC be overly concerned how CAC evolves as the company achieves scale? Or would they be satisfied seeing rapid and consistent ARR growth?

      Thanks for the thoughtful question Tadhg. SaaS investing is sometimes called “spreadsheet investing” because you need a couple of data points and you almost know if you’re going to invest, and at what valuation. They are LTV, CAC, monthly MRR growth, Churn and a few others depending on the business model. You can refer to SaaSTr for more on this: https://www.saastr.com/
