EVENT: Findings From the First Annual Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) Report, May 12, 2016

Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Emory University’s Social Enterprise Goizueta

Join the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs and Emory University’s Social Enterprise @ Goizueta for an in-depth presentation on the recent findings from the first annual Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI) report.

GALI is a multi-year global research initiative designed to explore - and answer - key questions about enterprise acceleration. Within a few short years, the program has collected detailed data from fifteen different  Village Capital programs across several countries, including the United States and many emerging markets. Analyzing this data, we have produced the first GALI annual report, which provides a valuable opportunity to learn about how specific program choices are driving accelerator performance.

After a detailed presentation by the report authors, key GALI partners and stakeholders will share their reactions to the findings as well as their hopes for the research program moving forward.
