SEQICC Survey 2014 - Indigenous Entrepreneurs
Thank you in advance for your participation! Your responses will help make the South East Queensland Chamber of Commerce stronger, more effective and responsive to you and your needs.

The South East Queensland Indigenous Chamber of Commerce (SEQICC) is looking to find out how it can better serve Indigenous businesses. This quick survey (estimated completion time - 15 minutes) is designed to find out more about your business, what your interests and needs are, and how the SEQICC can work with you to set up your business and expand your market share.

So that we can better serve you, we need to know a few things about you, your business, including information like how long you've been in business, your business structure, and an estimated annual turnover.

PLEASE NOTE: No information will be collected or released that can specifically identify you or your business. Your responses will only be used at the aggregate level. In others words, your responses will be combined with the responses of other entrepreneurs to look at overall themes, trends and opinions.
