Bayes Centre News: The Bayes Centre launches their new 2022 Startup Survey

The survey, which is being launched by the University of Edinburgh’s Bayes Centre in partnership with the Freer Consultancy, will examine how startups are navigating their way out of pandemic times.

We are excited to announce that the survey will be launched today and will ask Scottish startups and scale-up founders and CEOs about:

  • investor engagement
  • growth strategy
  • economic outlook
  • Scottish ecosystem support
  • hiring plans
  • returning to the office
  • new ways of working post-pandemic

Our Scottish Startup Survey has been running since 2017 in association with the Freer Consultancy, and targets a sample of Scottish tech companies drawn from both the EIE alumni and the wider startup community in Scotland. 

The EIE investor readiness programme delivered by the Bayes Centre has helped over 540 companies raise more than £1.1 billion since 2008. 

If you are part of a Scottish startup or scaleup and would like to take part in the survey, we invite you to complete it here.

Bayes Centre’s Karen Wood, Director of Enterprise, said:

The last couple of years have been challenging for so many business leaders, including in startup world, but we know that startups are a resilient breed and that investors continue to invest in innovation - all themes we expect to come through in this year’s survey.

Dave Hughes, CEO and co-founder of remote sensor specialist Novosound, an EIE alumni company who featured at EIE London earlier this year, said:

The results of the startup survey are a great barometer of the Scottish tech ecosystem. It has helped me to navigate our next stage of growth and, as a founder, realise that other founders share many of the same aspirations and concerns.
