If someone tried to hand you over a strict rule-book for your start-up, wait no-further and run in the opposite direction.
A SaaS business relies and depends upon its customers majorly. When it comes to the initial phase of setting up your business, your inclination must be to acquire more and more new customers by all means possible.
Businesses in their initial years often need external funds in order to maintain their operations and invest in future growth.

Every year new start-up’s join the business industry with creative ideas and with a hope to establish themselves as business giants but some fail in achieving this goal.
Small businesses and startups (mostly service-oriented) ask me for how much should we raise or take loan after basic investments? Here’s a simple math that works fine:
Base money: Get expenditure for the next 6 months covers (this is min. Better is 12 months)
Wastage: Get additional 20% for wasting charges (all company waste money in additional stuffs not needed) Lo an installments: Make sure you don’t have installments from day one. Else include them too.
What to do in these 6 months?
Do enormous tests: assign 10 customer/sales to each test depending on your product or service. each test shouldn’t go beyond 2-3 weeks. take a note of everything you learnt from these tests.
Prepare a plan: now take a list of approaches you are going to follow from your observation of your test.
Define target market: Keep only 1-2 in mind and washout everything else.
What to do in next 6 months?
focus, focus: Scale up on that target market and on that approach, while experimenting narrowly on side.
Do scaleup investments: hire, productivity tools etc.
If needed take another funding for 6-12 months: Make sure you are doing good in that.
