Analyzed data
With the growth of alternative startup financing and reflecting upon my past experience in B2B SaaS, I got curious if it is possible to predict ARR growth by analyzing what type of employees work in a B2B SaaS startup.

In other words, what should B2B SaaS startup do to grow the business?

  •  Hire more engineers to build new features?
  •  Hire more salespeople?
  •  Hire more support and customer success managers to take care of existing customers?

My hypothesis is that correct mix of employees (customer success, sales, engineering) may fuel mid-term and long-term growth of B2B SaaS startup. If this hypothesis is true, then the information about current mix of employees may enhance other financial and non-financial information (not available to general public, incl. me) to make a better prediction of future revenues, while startups can make better hiring decisions.
