Social Enterprise @ Goizueta


Research for Business and Society

We study connections between business practices, market structures and various social outcomes. Through faculty research, practitioner colloquia, and global programs we seek to answer important questions about poverty and prosperity.

Social Enterprise @ Goizueta

We collect and analyze data from 19,000 early-stage entrepreneurs from more than 250 accelerator programs to produce sector reports, support academic research, and provide actionable feedback to program operators in the field particularly those working in developing regions and/or focused on impact entrepreneurs. This research inspired the creation of the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) which SE@G supports in partnership with the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE).

Professor Peter W. Roberts new book "Observing Acceleration," co-authored by former ANDE researcher Saurabh A. Lall. The book summarizes five years of learning from data collected as part of the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) which partners directly with entrepreneur support programs around the world to track and validate program impacts while producing critical sector-wide research. The book serves as a valuable resource for scholars, policymakers, and practitioners interested in the effectiveness of accelerator programs as tools that unleash the full economic potential of entrepreneurship.
