July must be the month for small business surveys. I was recently contacted by Terri Lechton who is pursuing her doctorate in business with interest in entrepreneurship from the University of Maryland, University College. She is currently conducting a survey on how entrepreneurs in the Midwest acquire financial, human, and information resources. She is interested in seeing if homegrowns (those always living in the area), transplants (those new to the area), and boomerangs (those from the area who left and returned) approach and acquire resources differently.
The survey only takes about 5 minutes to complete. She is hoping for 350 responses from Indianapolis business owners with less than 100 employees. If you are interested in viewing the results, you can register in the results area. All of the data collection and analysis will be complete and sent to your inbox in September.
