TechCrunch is embarking on a major new project to survey Europe's top venture capital investors.
Our upcoming survey of VCs in Lisbon will capture how the city is faring, and what changes are being wrought amongst investors by the coronavirus pandemic. (Please note, if you have filled the survey out already, there is no need to do it again).
We’d like to know how Lisbon's startup scene is evolving, how the tech sector is being impacted by COVID-19, and, generally, how your thinking will evolve from here.
Our survey will only be about investors, and only the contributions of VC investors will be included. Multiple partners from the same firm are welcome to fill out the survey.
The shortlist of questions will require only brief responses, but the more you can add, the better.
Obviously, investors who contribute will be featured in the final surveys, with links to their companies and profiles.
What kinds of things do we want to know? Questions include:
- Which trends are you most excited by?
- What startup do you wish someone would create?
- Where are the overlooked opportunities?
- What are you looking for in your next investment, in general?
- How is your local ecosystem going?
- And how has COVID-19 impacted your investment strategy?
This survey is part of a broader series of surveys we’re doing to help founders find the right investors.
For example, here is the recent survey of London.
You are not in Lisbon, but would like to take part? Or you are in another part of the country? That's fine! Any European VC investor can STILL fill out the survey, as we probably will be putting a call out to your city next anyway! And we will use the data for future surveys on vertical topics.
The survey is covering almost every European country on the continent of Europe (not just EU members, btw), so just look for your country and city on the survey and please participate (if you're a venture capital investor).
Thank you for participating. If you have questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
