Entrepreneurship Survey

It's research time for the ACU McNair Scholars Program, and we have a scholar who needs your help. Check out his statement below and complete the survey if you can:

"Hello friends and family, over the summer I will be doing research with ACU’s McNair Scholar program! That being said, I’m asking for YOUR help. Please share and fill out this survey so that I can collect data for my research. Instructions are on the survey and it shouldn’t take more than 5 minutes to complete. Thank you and don’t forget to share!

Like I said, I will be doing research over the summer as required for ACU’s McNair Scholars program. I will be researching the entrepreneurial trends of those who were raised by immigrants as compared to those who were not; I am very excited to get to work on this, but I can’t do it without your help! All are welcome to fill out the survey, just known that I will remove any responses from those who are under the age of 18. This will be for their protection, but other than that anyone can complete the form. It will definitely be a huge benefit for the public, and for the business world to be able to see how diversity is making an impact in the world of entrepreneurship. Thanks for the help!

Here is the link to the survey:

Thank you,

This survey will be used in a new research that studies the entrepreneurial trends among those who were raised by immigrants as compared to those who were raised by more "Americanized" families. This survey is completely OPTIONAL and if at any point you feel uncomfortable during a question you are p...
