Last year the survey revealed:

– Executives are Bullish on 2015: 97% expect business conditions to be as good or better in 2015.

– Growth will come from abroad, most notably from the US: Over half of businesses expect 2015 revenues to come from abroad with 73% of these expect their international revenue to come from the US.

– The Innovation Economy is a Global Engine for Job Growth: 99% are maintaining or expanding their workforce.

– Capital is Plentiful, But Fundraising Remains a Challenge: 58% of respondents successfully raised private capital last year. 86% say the current fundraising environment is somewhat or extremely challenging.

Your input is critical to help represent the voice of the entrepreneur as well as tech and life science enterprises to advocate for the innovation sector in discussions about diverse topics such as tax reform, immigration and business sentiment.
