Today we are launching our survey to capture data on the Atlantic Canadian startup community in 2019, and we’re asking all founders in the region to take two minutes to complete our 14-question survey.

We know how busy people are, so we have made our survey is brief as possible. Filling in this brief survey creates three benefits.

  1. It helps to produce meaningful metrics for the startup community, which results in better programs. Policy-makers and support organization rely on our Atlantic Canadian Startup Data report as the benchmark on this segment of the economy. Your participation helps us collect the best data possible. And once again the report will be open to the public.
  2. It helps Entrevestor to provide free news on and for our community. The startup data report is a pillar of our business model, and it means we can continue to report on what’s happening in the startup world.
  3. We’re offering a further incentive to founders and CEOs to complete the survey promptly. We will donate $10 for each completed survey we accept by Feb. 3 to the Canadian Red Cross’s Australia Fires Appeal. We’re capping this at 200 responses, so we could donate as much as $2000.

We’re all appalled by the devastation in Australia, and this is a chance to help just a bit through a reputable Canadian organization that does great work. We’ll be thrilled if we reach our maximum.

You can find the survey by clicking here:

Here’s the fine print on our donations:

To be accepted as one of the 200 responses, you have to complete at least nine of the 14 questions. (We believe you can do this without revealing sensitive information.)

For your responses to be accepted, you have to meet our three criteria for a startup: 1. An Atlantic Canadian-owned company; 2. Commercializing innovation; and 3. Making a product for a global market.

We will publish how much we’ve donated to the Canadian Red Cross on Feb. 5.

Your responses to the survey will be 100% confidential. We do NOT publish data on individual companies, only aggregated data. If there is a particular question you feel uncomfortable answering, please just leave it blank.

By taking just two minutes to answer these questions, you can support Entrevestor’s work, develop important metrics for the community, and help to ease the suffering in Australia.
