About GALI

The Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) is a collaboration between the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and Emory University designed to explore key questions about enterprise acceleration such as: Do acceleration programs contribute to revenue growth? Do they help companies attract investment? GALI builds on the Entrepreneurship Database Program at Emory University, which works with accelerator programs around the world to collect data describing the entrepreneurs that they attract and support. To date, GALI has collected data from more than 19,000 early-stage ventures and partnered with more than 280 acceleration programs throughout the world. Click here to learn more >>
