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.

The Impact of Entrepreneurship Database Program: 2014 Year-End Data Summary

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 27, 2015
Updated: Monday, June 8, 2015

Since 2013, the Impact of Entrepreneurship Database program has been working with partnering accelerators and entrepreneur support programs to collect detailed data from entrepreneurs during their application processes. These entrepreneurs are then resurveyed every six months to gather valuable follow-up data.

This report summarizes application data collected from entrepreneurs who applied to participating accelerator programs during 2013 and 2014. After setting aside duplicate application surveys, surveys with too much missing information, and surveys from entrepreneurs who declined to share their application information with the Impact of Entrepreneurship Database program, the observations in this 2014 Year-End Data Summary are based on 2,376 early-stage ventures.
