The tough thing about being a startup is that no one is willing to share their numbers with you.
With that in mind, we’d like to announce the 2009 TechCrunch Web App Survey.
It’s an (optionally) anonymous survey where we can all share a bit of data about our userbase, traffic, financials and more. The more you’re willing to share, the more you’re going to learn from everyone else.
The whole goal of this project is to shed some light on a subject that very few people are willing to talk about publicly. It will help web startups understand how they compare to other companies, and then make decisions accordingly.
Here are the Questions:
Here’s How it Works:
We’re going to collect the data from Aug 11th – Sep 4th and then we’re teaming up with Carsonified to collate, sort and evaluate the data.
I’ll reveal the results live at FOWA London 2009.
Carsonified will also be designing a full PDF report and website to showcase the findings, which will be available one week after my presentation at FOWA. The report will be completely free to view and download.
Let’s Get Started!
Just head over to this survey and fill it out. All form data will be kept strictly confidential on an individual basis, only the aggregate data will be released and we won’t disclose the names of the startups that participated.
