I'm the Founder & CEO of CourseKey, a Series B stage vertical SaaS business that offers Vocational Training Software for blue collar businesses. We've become the largest provider of education management software in our space in a few short years. It's been a hell of a ride thus far and I'm so proud of our 80+ person team :-).
Cutting to the chase, I'm obsessed with SaaS -- vertical SaaS to be exact -- and spend a TON of time thinking about it (reading/writing/consuming), operating (running CourseKey), and investing (observing/evaluating) in the category.
Currently reading Amp It Up by Frank Slootman. Long list of great books I've consumed and loved here.
Spending some time on the SaaStr course - how to grow your SaaS business from $1M to $10M ARR. Other solid videos I love here.

CourseKey.com - CourseKey started as an idea on a piece of paper in my college dorm room and has grown to become the largest provider of education management software to vocational colleges in the U.S. Supporting 200+ businesses, 100,000+ students, and backed by ~$25M in venture capital.
