GALI Student Data Competition

Winning Submission

May 2018

The 2017 GALI Student Data Competition invited undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to answer a key question for the field of entrepreneurship:

"In our dataset of applicants to accelerator programs, what types of ventures (and entrepreneurs) are more or less likely to have received investment? Do different types of early-stage ventures attract investment from different sources?"

Congratulations to the winning team: Nishant Gupta, Piyush Keshri, and Hongye Mai from the University of Pennsylvania. Read their submission detailing their analysis and take-aways for the field.
