Subject: Does a company's funding model affect your technology buying decisions?

1.  Does a company's funding model affect your technology buying decisions?

Posted 12 days ago
Can you spare 3 minutes to answer a 4 question survey about how a company's funding strategy impacts your decision-making process when choosing to sign or renew a contract with a technology vendor?

For background, as a service to the community, for the last year I've been posting news, analysis, and opinion pieces to a blog (theNIRD.org) about M&A and investment activity in the not-for-profit technology market. I've presented webinars, written articles, and appeared at conferences, and will be speaking about this topic at AMS Fest in Washington, DC this November. At that event, I'd like to present some original research exploring to what extent various funding strategies affect not-for-profit executives' buying decisions. A summary of the survey data will be also posted to theNIRD.org for everyone to read.

Your response will, of course, be held in confidence. Click here to complete the survey.

Cheers!

Ben
