Yvette Torres-Rahman, Partnerships Director at Business Fights Poverty, interviews Peter Roberts, Academic Director, Social Enterprise @ Goizueta at Emory University.
Peter spearheads Goizueta’s Social Enterprise Initiative, which seeks to better understand how business principles and market-based solutions can be applied to address a range of important social issues. Much of his time is focused on analyzing trends in entrepreneurship and specifically how accelerator programs behave by gathering and interpreting data about them. He is part of the Global Accelerator Learning Initiative (GALI)—a first-time comprehensive market assessment and analysis of accelerators.
Listen to the podcast to hear to what extent accelerators actually accelerate growth of early-stage ventures and learn about what types of programming offered by accelerators have the highest impact on entrepreneurial success. Accelerators are affected by some of the challenges small and growing business face, like attracting managerial talent. This and other challenges are detailed further in ANDE's State of the Sector report which was launched yesterday.
