Santa Barbara Luncheon Series - Why The Cash Burn? Welcome To Software As A Service (SaaS)
An assortment of sandwiches, salads, and drinks will be provided.
Recent M&A, IPO, and VC activity has brought more light to the financials and metrics used to value fast growing but cash burning companies. Not all of these are traditional GAAP measures but why? How do you determine the real trajectory and viability of a company still burning cash? How and when will the bottom line become positive?
Matthew, Collin and Harrison will give you an insight into the Software as a Service (SaaS) technology and discuss the business model, why non-GAAP measures get used so much, and the key metrics to use when analyzing technology companies with a SaaS business model.
