This tweet led me to start a private community of $20k+ MRR SaaS founders, and there are now over 70 members

It all started 6 days ago with this tweet, asking if 5-10 other SaaS founders of $20k+ MRR companies wanted to be in a group DM on Twitter:

That tweet took off and I got a ton of requests asking to join the group DM.

I kept adding people, but once there were over 20 people in the group DM on Twitter, it got super messy and unorganized.

I figured it would be better suited to have an actual community for this, so I started a community on Circle called www.SaaSfriends.com

There are now over 70 members of $20k+ MRR SaaS companies in the community, with great participation and engagement so far.

If you're a SaaS founder doing over $20k in MRR, you can request to join via the link above (it's 100% free to join)

    Love this. saw the tweet at the time!

    you gonna charge money (and keep it) or if you don't want to keep it — reinvest it in prizes / books / courses / most helpful community member etc...?

    I suggest this is cause you're going to have 100+ soon. And the bigger the community the more diluted it become (with non-committed members)

    Money signals commitment. Anyhow. nice one

      Thanks Harry!

      I don't have any plans on charging for membership. There are already a decent amount of paid communities for founders at this level, and I have never joined them because of the fact that I had to pay to join (and it seems other founders at this level also feel the same way, based on the interest in my tweet).

      Instead of charging a membership, the plan will probably be to find a sponsor that aligns well with the community.

    Is there a way others can join as a viewer? If not, is it possible to make the list public at least? So that we know whom to follow on Twitter?

      Unfortunately not, as some members of the community are completely private with their revenue

    What if you HAD a saas doing over 20k but it's no longer there and you are building something new?

        The link takes me to a page that says I don't have access... there is no sign-up possibility presented.

          Hmmm, that is strange… Here’s the request form: https://forms.gle/ptLzZ6yTLQ7E5SKJ7

    Nice idea, congrats.

    Money signals commitment.

    I tend to agree with that. Definitely harder to grow though (I can speak from experience!!)

      Thanks Matt! It evolved organically very quickly
