Archived Surveys by Others
SIE is gathering and archiving surveys conducted or commissioned by Pikes Peak region organizations and will make them available here as appropriate. There is a wealth of information contained in these surveys and studies which we believe help to establish a baseline from which the community can work in the areas of community and economic development.
Thank you for your interest this important initiative!

2. To determine, from the entrepreneurs themselves, the most pressing issue in the community (in order to guide future community efforts)
3. To spark a conversation among all community stakeholders with the hope of inspiring cohesion and collaboration
