Research output: Book / ReportBook editingAcademic

Abstract

Accelerators are a rapidly growing new form of organization that aim to stimulate entrepreneurship through intensive, limited-period educational programs, including mentoring and networking for the cohort of start-up participants selected for each program, to improve their ability to attract investment at the end of the program. Drawing on novel evidence from across the world, this is the first book to provide rigorous analysis of the nature and effectiveness of accelerators that will be invaluable for researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurs. Understanding how accelerators build an entrepreneurial ecosystem, generate innovations and create new technologies is key for anyone wishing to nurture a start-up company.

Accelerators: Successful Venture Creation and Growth examines how the organisational structures and practices of start-up accelerators generate innovations and identify new technologies, products and services. Mike Wright and Israel Drori have developed an entrepreneurial approach to this topic, exploring accelerators and start-ups as temporary organisations. This allows the contributing authors to highlight issues relating to both internal and external processes. This book focuses on an important entrepreneurship trend that is growing, but has not yet undergone thorough research, and as such, is key for anyone wishing to understand the topic. This would be a stimulating and valuable read for entrepreneurs, policymakers and students looking to enter accelerators.
