The German Startups Association has recently initiated the European Startup Monitor, a research project with the goal to promote transparency for the European startup environment. An essential part of the study will be the results of the online survey which is now available to all founders and c-level employees of European & Israeli startups. Take the survey now. At the end you will have the chance to win one of the following:
–An exhibition stand at CeBIT for one full week
–One of two tickets to Pioneers Festival Vienna
–One of five tickets to Startup Camp Berlin, including flights and accommodation (for Berlin)
The goals of the project are to understand European founders as well as to identify and compare country specific and common challenges that the startup ecosystems face within Europe. The study is also an opportunity to foster communication between European entrepreneurs and will create a network for European representatives of startups. The European Startup Monitor opens the dialog between entrepreneurs and politicians and communicates the results right to the decision makers in Europe. The study will be published anually – starting in 2016.
All European countries are supposed to be represented by a national academic Chair for Entrepreneurship and national associations. For this purpose, one Chair for Entrepreneurship per country will be selected. The data for the study is generated by national startup associations and network partners, using their well established networks to circulate the online survey within the national startup ecosystem to create meaningful data.
Long story short: Please help connect the European startup ecosystems, take the survey and win one of the cool prizes described above!
