We always say that our podcast is made for anyone who is interested in the startup world, no matter what they’re doing right now. Sometimes it will be an experienced entrepreneur, and sometimes it will be someone who is completely unrelated to the tech world.
The language we use is so specific to the processes we are going through at monday.com and in the startup world in general, that we sometimes forget that we haven’t always spoken in this language. And then a new employee joins the company or we meet with a startup from a different industry, and we understand that there is a whole world of content and concepts that not fully understanding them will leave you stuck.
We’re on a mission to make this world fully accessible for everyone. That’s why we are launching our latest podcast series: Foundations. A series in which we will discuss basic concepts and principles from the startup world, which will allow you to approach any work process with the right context. Whether you are new to this world or want to deepen your understanding of this shared technology and software “language” – this series is for you.
To kickstart the new series, we host Eran Zinman, Co-Founder, and CTO at monday.com, who speaks with us about SaaS metrics: what do they mean, how to work with them, and how did we come to a situation where a strange group of letters like ARR (annual recurring revenue, sorry pirate friends) can indicate how successful your company is.
In the first episode, we dive into the history of the SaaS world and understand how a ‘small’ shift in a business model revolutionized the software industry.
