I’ve created a Google Sheet for putting together some rough SaaS projections, and I’d love some feedback for how it could be improved. For now, I don’t want to share it too widely, but I’d love to hear ideas from folks here in the forums.
I’ve made it view only, so you’ll need to duplicate it to create your own version to play with. So I’m definitely interested in hearing about any struggles anyone has using this to kickstart their own sheet in Google Docs.
The spreadsheet helps you think through all of the expenses for starting and running an app for the first two years as well as helping you see how revenue growth plays into it. It’s tough to walk the line between making it super-powerful and accurate and making it simple enough for people to hop in, get a ballpark understanding of how much money they’ll need to get started.
