We are conducting a research project to learn more about the entrepreneurial activities
and decision-making processes that take place in the CSE lab. This research aims at
uncovering similarities and differences among startups and ultimately at providing
entrepreneurs at CSE with insights into their startup’s development over time. Once you
are part of our proof program, you will participate in a monthly survey that includes
questions about yourself in the “founder” role, details of your startup, its business
model, your team and stakeholders. The results are advantageous to both you and your
startup’s advancement as well as for the continuous improvement of the CSE program.
