Take our survey on accelerators and incubators!


We are interested in women’s participation in business incubation and acceleration programs. The goal is to understand the characteristics of incubators and accelerators that affect the business outcomes of female entrepreneurs. We hope to gain insights into the factors, both structural and individual, that affect women’s participation in incubator and accelerator programs.

We are working with Washington Core, and as part of a multi-methodological study, we are surveying female entrepreneurs and managers of business incubators and accelerators.
