Description

Mike McDerment is Co-Founder, former CEO, and Board Chair of FreshBooks, and in this episode we’re talking about how to not kill your SaaS business.

Mike went from accidental founder to CEO of a SaaS company with over 24 million users and he’s learned a lot of lessons along the way having almost killed the business on multiple occasions.

In this episode, Mike talks about:
- How he accidentally founded a SaaS company
- Why moving too fast almost killed FreshBooks early on
- Why he underestimated word of mouth as a growth driver
- Why raising at the wrong time can be very dangerous
- The counter-intuitive idea of why Mike decided to start a direct competitor company to FreshBooks called BillSpring
