2015 Startup Investing Survey


To gauge interest for startup investing, if Title III of the JOBS Act is finalized, Mattermark and Quire teamed up to conduct the 2015 Startup Investing Survey. (3-5 minutes to complete)

We hope the survey helps demonstrate that people want to invest in startups, and we’ll also gather information on such things as:

  • Why they want to invest
  • Which companies they want to invest in
  • How much their average investment would be
  • What geographies, genders and ethnicities they represent
  • (This survey is optionally anonymous)

Quire will use the data to urge the SEC to finalize Title III, and to inform their policy recommendations.

Head on over to Quire to take the 2015 Startup Investing Survey, and to our blog to learn more about why we think this is important.
