New Carolina is Sponsoring a Survey to Understand the Capital Market Needs of High Growth South Carolina Firms
South Carolina Capital Market Survey and Report
New Carolina is partnering with the Faber Entrepreneurship Center at University of South Carolina’s Moore School of Business and the South Carolina Department of Commerce to conduct a survey to identify the greatest challenges that privately-held South Carolina companies are experiencing when attempting to secure debt and/or equity capital.
Log on to the following website to participate in the survey:
Company executives will benefit from participating in the survey because:
• Feedback from companies like yours will be used to identify opportunities for improving access to financial capital in the state.
• You will receive a free copy of the report that will examine South Carolina’s current capital markets and approaches for strengthening those markets.
The survey is designed to obtain feedback from privately held South Carolina companies, including start-up firms and fast growing existing companies.
Results from the survey, along with feedback from leaders in South Carolina’s financial community, will be used to produce a report that will examine South Carolina’s capital market gaps and identify opportunities for improving access to capital for companies that are headquartered in the state. The report will be published in October, 2012.
This survey will take less than 10 minutes to complete. All responses to this survey will be kept completely confidential. No information from individual survey responses will be used for any other purpose than to analyze South Carolina’s capital markets.
