You are being invited to participate in a research study entitled ‘An Evaluation of Reward Based Crowd Funding among Female Entrepreneurs’. This study is being undertaken by Dr. Sharon Loane and Dr. Laura Bradley from Ulster University in conjunction with Dr. Lorna Treanor from the University of Nottingham. The purpose of this research is to assess the awareness and uptake of crowdfunding (and other forms of alternative finance) by women entrepreneurs. It will take you approximately 10 minutes to complete this survey. Your participation is entirely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time. Your answers will remain confidential. We will minimize any risks by storing your data in an encrypted database on a secure server. In any subsequent reports or academic publications, all participants and their data will be anonymized.
We would really appreciate 10 minutes of your time to help us produce practical and academic outcomes to benefit women entrepreneurs and women hoping to start a business generally.
