Between 2013 and 2019, GALI partnered with dozens of accelerators to collect standardized data from early-stage ventures that apply to their programs. Based on this experience, GALI has compiled guidance on how to plan your data collection strategy, suggested survey questions, and an interactive benchmarking tool that allows you to compare your ventures’ performance against GALI’s global dataset.

This page includes tools to help accelerators plan, collect, and compare venture-level performance data from their cohorts. Answer the following questions to find out where to begin.

Where should I start?

Your answers to the following questions will help you know where to start in using this tool.

Do you already collect data from supported ventures?


Collecting and using data effectively can help you understand and increase the impact of your program, but it can be hard to know where to start. The materials in this section will help you understand how to define success and develop a useful data collection plan that gives you meaningful, actionable insights.

Do you collect data that aligns with GALI’s methodology?


GALI developed an extensive survey to track ventures at the application stage and in the years after acceleration for both accelerated and non-accelerated ventures. This section provides accelerators with the ability to replicate the full GALI survey, as well as a simplified and shortened set of survey questions that can be used to collect only the data needed for the benchmarking tool.
