0 to 1M ARR in 12 Months 🎉

Sabba keynejad @sabba

12 months ago we turned on our paywall and made our first ever SaaS $1!

For any entrepreneur, this is a moment that they will never forget. Tim and I could not control our excitement!

Exactly 12 months after our first payment, we have managed to cross the seemingly impossible task of hitting $83,333 MRR / $1M ARR!


The Indindie Hackers (and local Indie London / Indie Beers) communities have been a massive help to us over the last few years in so many ways, we would not be here without it!

As a small thank you, we have opened up our calendar next week. If you need any feedback, want to bounce around ideas, talk growth or just want to have a chat, you can book a call with me @sabba here

Sabba & Tim

Finally, we have written a blog post on everything we learnt growing VEED from $0 to $1M ARR in 12 months with revenue numbers, traffic, product and growth strategies

I will be in the comments all day if you have any questions!
