- Survey on support structures for entrepreneurs

You are welcome to fill out this survey if you work in a support structure for entrepreneurs.

Link to the survey : https://essec.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2lT7zQ1kfKrMASh

This survey is aimed support structures for entrepreneurs in Europe, Middle-East and North Africa as well as in North America.

The goal is to :

  • Deepen our understanding of social entrepreneurship's incubators, their practices and when possible their impact, worldwide.
  • Allow any organisation to create its own impact-driven project incubator, by writing a good-practices guide.
  • Create a community of incubators that share the same values around the world, and therefore permit fruitful collaborations and exchanges.

Thanks to the answers, we will create a good-practice guides for any organization willing to create a support structure for social entrepreneurs.

What do you get by answering?

  • You will, of course, receive the final report of the survey (results + analysis) by email. A survey on social innovation structures has never been made at this scale. By answering you will help deepen the knowledge in social innovation and possibly influence more persons and structures to act for good. 

  • You can integrate a community of structures that share the same values of social innovation around the world. Out of the willing respondents to the survey, we will create Linkedin and Slack groups, to permit fruitful collaborations and exchanges. (creation end 2020)

  • You can also be invited to our final event in 2022 in Paris, where we will share the results of Incubator 4 Change project as a whole.

  • If you are interested in the results, you can take part in a webinar we will organise once the report is done. (end 2020)

  • We propose to send you good-practice guides about social impact measurement, disability, gender issues to help you implement it in your structures (2022).

  • You will also benefit of the results of the survey, by knowing what others do. It will help you monitor your structure and get good practises from other countries.

This survey was designed to be as simple and as quick as possible. 20 minutes are sufficient to fill it out.

We remain available for any questions or if you need any help collecting data.
