This blog digs deep into the importance for SaaS companies to master the art of B2B Positioning […]
The fact that market research keeps confirming the statistic that 9 out of 10 SaaS startups fail bothers me – a lot. Sure, I realize there are 100s of reasons for it, but I also believe it’s out of proportion. It’s not that the ideas behind the business are always bad. It’s not that the product that’s been created is useless. Very often all of that is sound, the fact is, traction stays out – and too many don’t get to deliver their mission.
That’s why I decided to do a deep dive into one of the basics to get right: The SaaS Positioning strategy […]
In this blog, I am going to dig deeper into some of the underlying factors that have a leverage effect on helping to create ‘enough’ traction and beat the benchmarks. […]

Now I completely agree with this – however, I’d like to address an area where I see a lot of SaaS companies negatively impact their margin: The quality of their revenue. […]
“How can I reduce the waste in my sales pipeline?” It’s a question I received this week – and there […]
“How important it is on who we are for, and possibly more important….who we are not for. When we started nine weeks ago with the first prompt, I took it to our leadership team, where we discussed it deeply. Why? Because we, as the leadership team, influence this. It starts with us. […]
I had an entertaining catch-up call with my dear ex-colleague Christian Weichelt. We came to talk about the power of habits. His mantra: “Don’t control the output; control the inputs.”
