The Portland metro area (Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties) prides itself on having a broad network of support for entrepreneurs starting – or growing – a business. This study is to help identify any gaps in that system. This survey will take ten to twenty minutes to complete. Results will be used by service providers and their funders to understand how to best serve you and those in your community. 

The larger goal of this study is to foster innovation in the region by helping companies that develop new technologies, products or processes. Understanding what structural barriers exist and what could be done to reduce them will help entrepreneurs spend less time navigating the system and more time building their business. 
Your responses will be kept private and secure. We sincerely appreciate your assistance.
