It's hard to build a big SaaS business. This report looks at S1 filings from IPOs and here are some highlights; a recommended read for any SaaS entrepreneur:

- Analysis based on 12  enterprise SaaS IPOs in last 2 years
- 7-13 years to build to IPO  (mean 9.5 and median on 8)
- 3-6 rounds of funding (mean 4.45)
- $20-$300m raised on the way (mean $109, median $74m)
- 35% of staff and 45% of cost in S&M
- $36-$134m in last year revenue (mean $73m, media $61m)
- 20% avg from pro services
- One year trailing rev growth 59% and two year 75%
- Gross margin 48-82% (mean 65%, median 66%)
