We know a lot about entrepreneurs: who starts companies, who gets funding, how many people they employ and how much they contribute to the economy. But there is still a lot we don’t understand.
This research project aims to ascertain what happens along the Entrepreneurial Journey, and how this journey differs for entrepreneurs from various backgrounds and geographical locations.
We are now collecting information from entrepreneurs from all backgrounds to learn about individual entrepreneurial journeys and how we can better support them along the way. As soon as we have gathered enough responses, we will share our data through an interactive visualization that anyone can use, from entrepreneurs to investors, and philanthropists to lawmakers, to gain powerful insights.
Your entrepreneurial journey is unlike any other. We want to be sure your unique experience and business goals are represented in our data and visualizations.
Encourage your network to participate by sharing this URL. A quick tweet or post on LinkedIn will help bolster our research and drive meaningful changes.
Use our interactive visualizations to explore your own journey or compare the journeys of different entrepreneurial communities.

“The Entreprenuerial Journey survey was a nice reflection activity. Sometimes we forget how far we’ve actually come from the idea to where we are currently.”
