ANDE Global Accelerator Learning Initiative

Acceleration contributes to an entrepreneur’s growth and helps them to expand their network. Evidence from the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI), a partnership between the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) and Emory University, shows a significant improvement in those who participated in acceleration – both globally and in emerging markets.

Nevertheless, the rapidly changing world makes it imperative that accelerators and other Entrepreneur Support Organizations (ESOs) pivot and adapt their models. We are challenged with the ever-changing needs of both the SGBs as well as our ecosystem.

With this, ANDE East and Southeast Asia invites you to a roundtable to discuss the innovative acceleration program, from its design to implementation and measurement through collaborative-lens with financial sustainability in mind. Accelerator representatives will share thought-provoking examples. The session will take the format of a round table via ‘’, so you will have the ability to switch the tables and join different topics. Join us for a thought-provoking session on the path to delivering more innovative and sustainable acceleration programs.

Please note that participants are expected to jump into the conversation. We limit the number of participants to a maximum of 25. Therefore, we will have only one delegate from each organization represented. By the end of the session, we hope to have a board with suggested best practice for design, implementation, and measurement.

Session Objectives:

  • Share lessons learned from past program design and implementation
  • Co-create a best practice to innovative program design
  • Seek and build effective collaboration among ESOs
