East and Southeast Asia Chapter
Acceleration Learning Lab

This learning lab aims to address the gap in data about the effectiveness of accelerators, focusing on the East and Southeast Asia region.

This learning lab aims to address the gap in data about the effectiveness of accelerators. ANDE’s ESEA chapter regularly supports research to deepen accelerator and incubator programs in the region.

The learning lab builds on the work of ANDE’s Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI). Since 2013, GALI has been working with accelerator programs around the world to collect and analyze data describing the many entrepreneurs that they attract and support.

Activities have included a GALI roadshow, roundtable, fail faire, and meet-ups and other peer-to-peer learning convenings to foster collaboration among diverse stakeholders in accelerator and incubator programs. Sessions are complemented by GALI research data, insights, and recommendations to guide our members and non-members in understanding the landscape and effectiveness of ESEA accelerators and incubators and exploring how to level the field in terms of access to these programs, ultimately strengthening the SGBs ecosystem.
