2016 Annual Survey on Entrepreneurship and innovation
The Economic Research Institute of Erie in the Black School of Business at Penn State Behrend is conducting our 2016 Annual Survey on Entrepreneurship and innovation in the local region.
The purpose of this Survey is to gain your insights into the innovative culture within Erie County, Pennsylvania from the perspective of your business. The responses provided will be used to estimate the amount of innovative ideas and activities being generated by Erie County businesses, and to track its evolution over time. Since entrepreneurship and innovation are crucial for long-term growth, dynamism, and prosperity, an important task is to gauge the extent and progress of these activities in our community.
The Survey should take no more than about 15 minutes, so we hope you will participate. It will provide very important statistical information that we will tabulate, analyze, and disseminate to the community. All answers are completely anonymous and will be kept strictly confidential; only aggregate information will be released for publication.
Your participation is completely voluntary. You may end your participation at any time, and/or choose not to answer specific questions. (Apologies if you receive more than one invitation to complete this Survey. Please complete the Survey only once.)
