Does it pay for Canadian technology firms to ‘go international’? A 2 Question Survey, Lazaridis Institute & CATA Research

Dear Community members,

The Lazaridis Institute in Waterloo is partnering with CATA for a national study on the role of international business in the success of Canadian technology firms.

Your participation will help Canadian tech firms improve what they do internationally.  

To get started, there’s just two questions:

  1. Is your firm Canadian and selling a tech-based product or service?
  • Yes
  • No
  1. Is your firm already generating revenues outside Canada?
  • Yes
  • No

To answer these questions and offer guidance, should you wish, we have set up a very short qualifying 2 Question Survey at this URL: go to:  https://goo.gl/forms/7nqk2oIlii8Z0KrD3

If you answer YES to the questions, you will then be invited to participate in our full survey (please!!!).

Everyone who completes the 2 Question Survey, will receive a complimentary copy of our research results.

For your time (about 10 minutes for the larger Survey), we will send you a $10 e-gift card that you can use at (e.g.) Amazon, Esso, Starbucks or Boston Pizza.

Thanks very much from both the Lazaridis Institute and CATA!
