QuOTE survey results help entrepreneurial companies in North Carolina’s Triangle region anticipate business decisions and plan for growth by providing an overall entrepreneurs’ economic outlook index based on businesses’ projected six-month sales, spending and employment figures. Over time, trends in this index can be viewed as indicating general optimism or pessimism about entrepreneurship in the Triangle.

Survey responses are analyzed by Jeff Pollack, an assistant professor in Poole College’s MIE department. Pollack developed the survey based on a survey of large companies conducted nationally by the Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs of American companies.
