Today, we’re launching our campaign to ask the founders and CEOs of Atlantic Canadian startups to take two minutes to complete our 2018 survey.

We’re working with partners across the region to enhance our annual analysis of the Atlantic Canadian startup community.

We need your help. In the next week, we will contact founders, asking them to take two minutes to answer the 15 questions in the survey. You can find our survey here:

Why should you fill it in? Because Entrevestor’s startup data is the benchmark for the whole region, followed by policy-makers and stakeholders. The greater the participation rate, the better information we will all have about the startup community.  

We’re looking for responses from companies that meet three criteria: majority owned by Atlantic Canadians; commercializing innovation; and developing a product for the global market.

We know it’s a pain for people to complete surveys, so we have reduced the amount of time it takes. We only have 15 questions, down from 18 last year.

All your answers will be 100 percent confidential – we publish aggregated data but never divulge information on individual companies. And if there are any questions you don’t want to answer, just skip them.

We’ll have some exciting announcements about the Entrevestor survey in the coming weeks. In the meantime, please do us a huge favour and answer our 15 questions.

Many thanks.
