2018 GLOBAL STARTUP FUNDRAISING SURVEY

Dear Entrepreneur,
This survey takes no more than 10 to 15 minutes to complete. No need to have fundraising experience to take part in the survey. All data you provide is confidential and aggregated with the other respondent data to generate anonymized population-level findings.

We understand that you are busy. We also appreciate that raising capital on a continual basis is crucial to the survival of startups. As former high-tech entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the physical and mental pressures of regularly raising capital.

We seek to collect your experiences and preferences in order to better understand how startups can utilize various funding modes to support sustainable growth. We seek to include all types of startups across the globe involved in digital and high-tech industries.

In alignment with Tilburg University's research policy all information you provide is confidential and no identifying data will ever be shared. Participating startups and research partners will receive our anonymized + aggregated findings before August 31, 2018.

Thank you in advance for participating + sharing the website with fellow entrepreneurs and startups!


This research is very interesting for all entrepreneurs. These findings will provide quantitatively substantiated benchmarks to support startups’ decision to target venture capitalists, corporate venture capitalists, super angels, or one of the other five investor types during their next fundraising event!
