2019 STARTUP OUTLOOK
STARTUPS ARE FOCUSED ON INNOVATING DESPITE UNCERTAINTYSVB is pleased to present the 10th edition of our annual Startup Outlook Report, focusing on the innovation economies of
the US, the UK, China and Canada.
When we launched Startup Outlook a decade ago, our goal was to provide a forum for entrepreneurs to share their outlook — in order
to help startups, policymakers and the public understand innovation’s contribution to the US economy. Since then, we’ve added reports covering the UK and China, and this year we introduce the inaugural Canada Startup Outlook.
Our goal is unchanged: to report the views of the world’s most innovative entrepreneurs. In the 2019 Startup Outlook, read how technology and life science founders and executives in the US, the UK, China and Canada are planning for growth amid economic uncertainty. They tell us they are generally optimistic about opportunities to fund their businesses, expand their workforces and continue innovating while recognizing marketplace and political challenges.

SLOW PROGRESS TOWARD GENDER PARITY
Our annual report finds that about half of startups have at least one woman in leadership — and progress toward gender parity is slow, particularly on startup boards.
