Accelerating Impact: Decoding the Drivers of Sustainable Impact Entrepreneurship

Celena Aponte The Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center

This will be a dynamic session exploring the crucial factors that empower impact-driven entrepreneurs to build enduring businesses. A study published in Harvard Business Review in March 2024 revealing the significant impact of accelerator participation on fundraising and growth, finding that startups that participate in accelerators raised 50% to 170% more from investors and were more likely to be growing or acquired than similar companies. Our panel dives into the essential educational resources and supportive communities that underpin entrepreneurial success. From mentorship and peer learning to pacing and cohort dynamics, we’ll dissect the key elements of startup community-based programs and accelerators to uncover what truly matters in fostering sustainable impact ventures.
