Tag: Survey

Who likes taking startup surveys? You do. So I got you two.

Surveys. They’re like a way to get information. That can be infuriating at times. Especially when they keep hitting you. Wave after wave. But I’ve got two that are well worth your time. If you’re interested in startups getting more support. And women founders. Or one. Or the other. Whatever the case, I’ve got something for you to do this weekend.

Please share and respond to the PDWIT State of the Community 2020 survey

Every year I look forward to the results of the Portland Women In Tech (PDXWIT) State of the Community survey results. Not because the results are easy to hear. Or even stomach. Far from it. But they’re a clear indicator of where our community is broken. And where work can be done.

And nonprofit Built Oregon would like to help quantify it. So that officials at local and state government have a better understanding of the actual numbers of companies impacted.

Another day, another founder survey: As an entrepreneur how do you give back to community?

In my experience, Portland founders are pretty good at giving back. Through volunteer work. Or donations. Or participating in organizations like Business for a Better Portland. But like so many things Portland, the measurement of that participation is largely anecdotal. That’s why it’s nice to see a survey working to capture more details and metrics on this behavior.

Dear startup founder, Are you taking care of yourself? What about your mental and behavioral health?

Startups are grueling. Even as an employee. For founders? They’re exponentially more of a grind. With the pressure. And the people relying on you. And the investors. As such, founders go through any number of ups and downs. Which often result in burnout. And depression. And those feelings can lead to substance abuse. Or ignoring the problem. Yeah. It’s tough. Really tough.
