Each year, Silicon Valley Bank, an Advanced Technology Development sponsor, surveys executives around the world for insight into the dynamics of high-growth companies. The results of this sixth annual Innovation Economy Outlook survey will help policymakers, investors and the business public understand the business and policy issues facing companies like yours.
Last year we learned:
- Companies Performed Strongly in 2014: 76 percent met or beat revenue targets in 2014.
- Executives are Bullish on 2015: 71 percent expect business conditions to be better in 2015.
- The Innovation Economy is a Global Engine for Job Growth: 98 percent are maintaining or expanding their workforce.
- Capital is Plentiful, But Fundraising Remains a Challenge: 49 percent of respondents successfully raised private capital last year, while 81 percent say the current fundraising environment is somewhat or extremely challenging.
Your input is critical to help represent the voice of the entrepreneur as well as tech and life science enterprises to advocate for the innovation sector in discussions about diverse topics such as patent reform, immigration and business sentiment.
