How to Figure Out Your Competitors’ Revenues in About 70 Seconds

A friend of mine who heads business intelligence at a public web company taught me a little hack that does seem to work pretty well to figure out the revenues of any pre-public SaaS/web services company.

Here is the formula:

  • Take the # of employees the SaaS company has, as reported on LinkedIn’s Company profile for that company.

and

  • Multiply by $150,000 if well-funded.  $200,000 if modestly funded. 

And that’s the company’s revenues.  All done.
