Hundreds of accelerators around the world support early-stage entrepreneurs to grow and secure funding. GALI exists to investigate their effectiveness.
For the past five years, GALI has been collecting data on accelerators around the world and the entrepreneurs who seek their support. This report serves as a synthesis of the most salient findings from this research, with actionable insights for accelerator program managers, entrepreneurs, funders, investors, and other stakeholders who support and engage accelerators around the world.
GALI was co-created by the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Emory University in 2015 as a research initiative to build the evidence base for what works in enterprise acceleration.
