2018 has been a huge year for European tech, and we’d like your help telling its story. In December 2018, Atomico, in partnership with Slush and Orrick, are publishing their annual State of European Tech report, the most comprehensive deep-dive into the local tech scene and the issues that impact it the most – from talent and capital, regulation and the rise of deep tech. A core part of the report is a survey of entrepreneurs, investors and people across Europe’s many start-up hubs. 
Please click here to fill in the short survey and have your say. It should take no more than 8 minutes.
Slush 2018 will be giving away free conference tickets to five people who complete the survey before October 19th.
