Official project title: Evaluating business incubator and accelerator business models
Project leader: Dr. Elsie Onsongo
Duration: 2019 - 2020
This project will investigate business incubator and accelerator business models and their effectiveness in supporting start-ups and growing businesses in Kenya. The project would analyse the dynamics of success and failure of supported businesses, and identify which elements of incubator/accelerator programmes work in their context of operation. It will also evaluate which types of ventures benefit the most from business support and why, and explore how business support programmes could be optimised to address any gaps.
The study will be conducted in Kenya in the course of 2019/2020.
