Each year, long-time NVCA partner SVB surveys executives at high-growth companies to collect insights about innovative companies around the world. Named the Innovation Economy Outlook survey (formerly Startup Outlook), the study aims to assess the health of various tech sectors and public policy factors affecting venture investing.
In past years, the survey focused on technology, life sciences and cleantech companies in the U.S. and UK that have up to $100 million in annual revenues. This year, SVB is extending the survey to established companies and to more geographies.
NVCA is asking members to encourage management at their portfolio companies to take the SVB Innovation Economy Outlook survey before January 24. Participants will have the opportunity to request the results of the study, which could provide valuable intelligence regarding their companies’ performance relative to peers and regarding future outlooks for their industries.
