European economic growth comes from innovation. Innovation comes from entrepreneurship. And entrepreneurs need finance. So if policy makers wish to promote inclusive, sustainable and resilient growth in Europe, they should understand the process by which finance finds new ventures. The matching between investors and entrepreneurs, however, is not well understood. That is the purpose of this survey. We investigate what factors drive the success or failure of new ventures to find financiers and the other way around. We then aim to inform policy makers how to mobilize more capital for venturing. And what better way to go about this than to ask the people most directly involved, investors and entrepreneurs. Your insights and opinions will be most valuable.
