Surveys

As part of our efforts, we will be asking you to complete a series of surveys for us.  These surveys are for the use of the V-WISE program and are used to continue to improve our program offerings around the country.

Pre-conference (upon admission):

This instrument is designed to establish a baseline for entrepreneurial progress, and also to provide insight into the participant’s goals, motivations, prior experiences, and background.  It will also be used to collect information of V-WISE marketing, recruiting, and admission activities (i.e. how you heard of the program, simplicity of the admission process, etc.)

Post-conference (last conference day):

This instrument is designed to provide insight into the conference training in each city with regard to utility of topics, quality on instruction, and the overall residency ‘experience.’  In addition, this instrument will assess the participant’s beliefs with regard to such outcomes as the extent to which the V-WISE conference was effective in preparing them to pursue their entrepreneurial goals.

Quarter (3-month intervals up to one year) post-conference:

This instrument will focus on tracking business success metrics and life/family outcomes as they relate to the V-WISE program and the participant’s entrepreneurial goals.  In addition, this instrument will also capture the graduate’s feedback with regard to their use of/success with SBA resources.

Biannual post-conference (after one year of graduation):

This instrument will focus on tracking business success metrics and life/family outcomes as they relate to the V-WISE program and the participant’s entrepreneurial goals.  In addition, this instrument will also capture the graduate’s feedback with regard to their use of/success with SBA resources.

The assessment program detailed above is well positioned to confer significant insight into the efficacy of the V-WISE program with regard to entrepreneurial development and resulting life outcomes across the community of V-WISE graduates and their families.
