Help Wanted: collecting the impact of entrepreneurial support initiatives

August 03, 2017

SSTI encourages organizations dedicated to serving entrepreneurs to participate in the creation of a new primary data set on the impacts resulting from your efforts. The deadline for participation is August 16.

The International Business Innovation Association (InBIA), with funding from the U.S. Economic Development Administration, is currently conducting the IMPACT Index Survey to measure the impact of entrepreneurial support organizations in their communities and industry sectors. The dataset helps organizations and policymakers determine best practices, benchmarking, and industry trends. The survey is open to all relevant organizations, such as incubators, accelerator programs, economic development centers, maker spaces, tech transfer offices, venture development organizations, and more.

Participants will receive a personalized report based on their organization's comparative metrics by the end of Q3 this year.

To begin the IMPACT Index Survey, or for more information, please visit impactindex.inbia.org, or contact the InBIA research team via email at impactindex@inbia.org. Responses are requested by Wednesday, August 16, to ensure timely delivery of personalized reports.
