August Virtual Events hosted by the Kauffman Foundation

Join us Thursday, August 26 at 10 a.m. CT for the Entrepreneurship Issue Forum, “Accelerators: What do we know about their role in supporting entrepreneurship?”

Research on accelerators has proliferated in recent years, and we are learning more about the impact of accelerators on entrepreneurs and their businesses, as well as on regional economies. In this forum, we will hear from scholars at the forefront of exploring the role of accelerators in entrepreneurial support—examining important issues such as the aspects of accelerator programs that are most valuable for entrepreneurs, who is benefitting from accelerator participation, and what the long-term outcomes of participation are. We will also hear from a panel of individuals running accelerator programs and entrepreneurs who have participated in accelerators about how the experience has shaped their entrepreneurial journeys.
