Thanks for taking part in this groundbreaking research looking at startups & their internationalization efforts. This survey takes on average 5 minutes to complete and all information is kept strictly confidential. Nobody other than me will have access to this data. Your high level data will be aggregated alongside every other co. My goal is to collect data on at least 50 European B2B startups to compare to a dataset of US B2B startups. The ultimate product is the International Playbook which will have the stats + best practices collected over years of working with startups going international.

At then end, you can leave your email address so you can get early access to the research findings and also get invited to the launch event of the International Playbook. I'll also mention the name of your co in the report as one of the European startups that participated (only if you are happy for me to do so).

Requirements to participate in this survey: (1) Your company must have been founded in Europe (including Russia and Israel), (2) your company must be a B2B business (we will conduct a 2nd study of consumer companies later on!) (3) You must have launched in at least one international market to date and (4) you must be on a run-rate of at least $1m.

For example, if you launched anytime in 2008 and then hired your first employee and set-up a subsidiary or another office anytime in 2015, this would be 7 years. (note: it is possible to have launched two markets in your first year and hence, put a 0).
