Hello ,

“Who can I talk with about B2G sales?” is a question we hear more and more. When Shotspotter went public recently, Jordan Elpern-Waxman looked at how their B2G SaaS metrics stack up against other SaaS companies. It’s terrific analysis, but it made us realize how little data there is to help startups benchmark B2G sales. So we’re doing the first global B2G SaaS survey. B2G teams interested in sharing and learning from each other are encouraged to contribute data and will exclusively receive the anonymized results. We’ll be sharing key takeaways in the coming weeks.

We’re wrapping up more than a half dozen new investments but we’re not quite ready for introductions. We’ll have lots to share in the next update.
