Show Notes

Most traditional SaaS companies will not successfully pivot to PLG.

They will disrupted by PLG challengers just like on-prem companies vs the cloud.

This was a surprising learning in our latest podcast episode. Mark Roberge runs Stage 2 Capital and was CRO at HubSpot. He's seen how hard it's been for many top-down companies to try to go bottoms-up.  

Listen to the episode to understand:

  1. Why it's so hard to pivot into PLG
  2. The only way to survive the transition if you are dead set on becoming PLG
  3. How to develop your PLG go-to-market tech stack and why growth stage companies are better off buying tech rather building in-house
