Accelerators share a set of program characteristics that distinguish them from other forms of capacity development services. Specifically, they are time-limited programs that work with cohorts or “classes” of ventures to provide mentorship and training, with a special emphasis on connecting early stage ventures with investment.
The global accelerator landscape is growing and changing at a rapid pace. We conducted this research to identify accelerators around the world and to provide insight into what acceleration looks like in various geographies and contexts.
