Dear Stanley,

I’m currently conducting a research project at the University of St.Gallen, Switzerland. It deals with the challenges of cleantech companies to finance their ventures. It is my goal to understand how entrepreneurs choose between possible investors and how they picture their “ideal investor”.

The OnGreen is an intelligent platform . At the same time, its users are ideal candidates for my project. I would like to invite them to conduct a short survey online.

I would be very glad if you could help me reaching as many entrepreneurs as possible on OnGreen. The questionnaire will take less than 10 minutes. All data are handled strictly confidential.

Thank you very much for helping me.
