The Impact of Entrepreneurship Database Program 2015 Mid-Year Data Summary
September 2015

by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Social Enterprise @ Goizueta, Emory University

The Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI), a collaboration between ANDE and Emory University, is designed to explore – and answer - key questions about enterprise acceleration including: Do acceleration programs contribute to revenue growth? Do they help companies attract investment? Do they work as well for developing-world impact entrepreneurs as they do for developed-world tech entrepreneurs?

This report summarizes application data collected from 3,113 early-stage ventures entrepreneurs who applied to participating accelerator programs during 2013, 2014 and early 2015.

Entrepreneurship and Acceleration Questions from the Field Volume I

Posted By Administration, Monday, March 21, 2016

Entrepreneurship and Acceleration: Questions from the Field 
February 2015

by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Social Enterprise @ Goizueta, Emory University

In this brief, we use data from the Entrepreneurship Acceleration Research Initiative in order to respond a question submitted by the MasterCard Foundation about Youth Entrepreneurship in Africa: "At The MasterCard Foundation, we have a portfolio of youth entrepreneurship projects that we support in Sub Saharan Africa. We’re always looking for data to better understand the space and to inform our programming. I’m wondering if you could share any data by ages 18-24 and 25-30, and by African country or region if possible. Do you see anything interesting under these parameters?"

Updated: Thursday, September 26, 2013
The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) is a global network of organizations that provide critical financing and business support services to small and growing businesses (SGBs) in the developing world.
