Welcome to the Illinois Entrepreneurial Index Survey.

Illinois is in the midst of an entrepreneurial renaissance. The landscape of startup companies is changing rapidly, and our region’s policy makers and entrepreneurial supporters are working hard to take these changes into account. That is why Built in Chicago, the Chicago Clean Energy Trust, the Chicagoland Entrepreneurial Center, the Chicago Innovation Awards, the Illinois Science and Technology Coalition, the Illinois Technology Association, the Illinois Venture Capital Association, TiE Midwest, Tech America and World Business Chicago have come together in a first of its kind survey of Illinois’ entrepreneurial landscape.

If you are an entrepreneur currently working on an active venture, please complete our brief 10 minute survey. Your individual answers will be kept confidential unless you select otherwise, and we will report all activity only in aggregate. We will take the information collected through the survey to form an Illinois entrepreneurial index to share with startups, policy leaders, and corporations. We believe by quantifying the entrepreneurial activity in the region, we will be able to make better decisions collectively and encourage additional people to actively support startups.

Thank you for completing the survey.
