We illuminate the factors that induce and impede the realization of societal impacts through both faculty research and our flagship research program, Entrepreneurship Database program at Emory, which collects rigorous longitudinal data from accelerator programs and entrepreneurs from around the world to determine what works and what doesn’t in entrepreneur acceleration.

Entrepreneurship Database Program at Emory
Despite the explosion of accelerator programs that aim to stimulate the growth and/or impact of entrepreneurs, there is limited empirical research due to the lack of reliable data. The Database Program works with accelerator programs to collect and analyze data describing the entrepreneurs that they attract and support.
The program establishes a comprehensive database for the much-needed study of issues and challenges faced by entrepreneurs around the world. As it expands, the Database will produce empirically-valid insights and benchmarks for top university researchers to study and publish answers to questions central to the development of the sector.Read More
