In partnership with New Economy Initiative (NEI) and Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE), we are conducting research on how business entrepreneurs engage and give back to their communities. As an entrepreneur, we would love to hear from you so we can represent the perspective and voice of today’s entrepreneurs in our report. 

The survey has two parts. First, a pre-survey screener asks five questions to determine if you are a fit for the full survey. It should take less than 3 minutes to complete. For those who satisfy the criteria, you will progress to the full survey, which includes 40 questions and should take approximately 15 minutes to complete.

Your responses are anonymous by default, but you can opt to provide your name and contact information at the end of the full survey so we can properly thank you by: 
  • Entering you to win a $100 Amazon gift certificate; winner will be notified at the end of July.
  • Potentially profiling you in our report as an entrepreneur spotlight.
  • Sending you an advanced copy of the report with this survey’s findings (estimated publish date: fall 2019)
This survey will be available until July 26, 2019. At the end of this survey, we'll ask your help in sending it to entrepreneurs in your network. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

Thank you in advance for your time, thoughts, and contributions. If you have any questions about the survey, please always feel free to contact project leaders at
