The Startup Muster was founded in 2013, with its stated aim being to measure and publish the progress, challenges and opportunities in the startup ecosystem, in order to demonstrate and accelerate impact.
Over the last three years 3,881 startup founders, future founders and startup supporters have provided 178,879 answers in three annual surveys.
The 2017 survey has gone live in recent days, with this year’s muster also providing an option for survey participants to connect with each other.
Supporters can define the kind of startup they can best support, and startups will be able to engage with matching supporters, and to provide feedback on the whether their support was valuable. Organisers of the Startup Muster have confirmed that more valuable engagements will be prioritised over time, giving founders a shortcut to supporters that have previously helped startups like their own.
“As a founder it’s sometimes hard to know which support options will be most helpful. Instead of asking startup founders what they want, Startup Muster will show founders the supporters that have generated recommendations from startups like their own, opening up opportunities that they may not have considered,” Startup Muster CEO, Monica Wulff, said.
“We’ve been asked for something like this for years, and it will be nice to provide more value back to everyone who generously provides their time in the survey,” she added.
