TechCrunch is starting a new major project to survey European founders and investors in cities outside the larger European capitals.
Over the next few weeks we will be asking entrepreneurs in these cities to speak in their own words about their ecosystems.
This is your chance to put your city on the Techcrunch map!
This is the follow up to the large investor survey (also see below) that we have been doing over the past 6 months or more, mostly in capital cities.
These were part of a wider series of surveys that we regularly conduct for ExtraCrunch, our subscription service that unpacks important topics for startups and investors.
In the first wave of polls (as you can see below), the cities we wrote about were largely capital cities.
This time we will survey founders and investors in other European cities to understand how European hubs are growing from the perspective of the local people.
We would like to know how your city’s startup scene is developing, how COVID-19 is affecting the technology sector, and how your city in general will develop.
We leave most of the submissions unprocessed and generally look for at least a paragraph or two to answer the questions.
If you are a founder or investor of a tech startup in one of these cities, please fill out our survey form here.
