ENTREPRENEURS’ ECONOMICAL INFLUENCE ON THE E.U. MARKET. Europort, in collaboration with San José State University School of Business is conducting an extensive research project to reveal insightful information on the practices of European entrepreneurs doing business from the San Francisco Bay Area. This survey will play a crucial role in obtaining information on the effect that entrepreneurs from the Silicon Valley have on the EU economy. In exchange, we will offer meaningful results from the report that will be presented this summer to the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium and at the different European Consulates in the Bay area. Participants will get data from the report. Please, be assured that although the results of this study will be published, all individual responses will remain completely confidential; entrepreneurs are not required to reveal their identity in this survey. Only aggregate responses will be reported and no information that could identify a person will be released. We are looking to get a flight ticket to Europe raffled among the participants (details to follow). Completion of this online survey should take you around 10 minutes. If you have any questions, please contact Olivier Minkowski at olivier@europort.org We sincerely appreciate your support in this joint effort.
