Survey on The State of European Tech in 2017
 
Begin survey
 
For the past two years, Atomico and Slush have published The State of European Tech report, one of the most comprehensive deep-dives into the local ecosystem.

Central to the report is our annual survey that captures the views of the people that make up that ecosystem.

As a token of our appreciation we will be holding a prize draw to win a FREE pass to Slush 2017 in Helsinki. We have five available that will be randomly selected from completed survey responses that include an email address.

This survey should take no more than five minutes to complete.
