Webinar Recording: Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets

Posted By Abigayle Davidson, Aspen Institute, Thursday, May 25, 2017

GALI Webinar: Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets from ANDE on Vimeo.

GALI Webinar: Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets

This webinar presents the latest report from the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI). 

Accelerating Startups in Emerging Markets: Insights from 43 Programs examines data from over 2,400 early stage ventures that applied to 43 acceleration programs run by twelve different organizations in nine different countries. The report, developed in partnership with Deloitte Canada, compares the performance of accelerators in emerging markets with those run in high-income countries. It challenges commonly held assumptions about the perceived differences between the two geographies using quantitative and qualitative data collected from entrepreneurs, ventures, and the accelerator programs themselves.

In this webinar, we walk through:

  • Data on the early impacts of acceleration on revenues, employees, and investment 
  • Qualitative and quantitative insights into commonly-held beliefs about differences between emerging market and high-income country entrepreneurs and accelerators
  • Reflections from practitioners 

Presenters: 

Peter Roberts is the Academic Director of Social Enterprise @ Goizueta (SE@G) and Professor of Organization and Management at Emory University‚Äôs Goizueta Business School. Professor Roberts founded SE@G after many years of conducting research on how the behavior and performance of organizations evolve over time.  He directs the Entrepreneurship Database Program, which forms the foundation of GALI, and has been working with accelerator programs around the world to collect and analyze data describing the many entrepreneurs that they attract and support.

Abby Davidson is a Research Analyst at ANDE, with a special focus on the role of accelerators in emerging markets. She leads the Global Accelerator Survey at GALI, and co-authors major GALI publications, and leads the Data Brief series. 

Practitioner Reflections:

Heather Strachan, Manager for Emerging Markets Operations and Product, Village Capital
