The Global Startup Accelerator (GSA) Index


IEEE Entrepreneurship is currently seeking Regional Ambassadors to assist with the maintenance of The Global Startup Accelerator Index (GSA), as it is an invaluable resource for the IEEE Community. 

IEEE Entrepreneurship’s mission is to provide resources and services to foster entrepreneurial engineering and technological innovation for the benefit of humanity, and we need your help!

The index is an IEEE information resource for researching entrepreneurial information from all ten regions that include universities, co-working spaces, pitch competitions, incubators, accelerators, grants, and funding.

Why is the GSA so important?

It facilitates connections that lead to successful partnerships within the community. Most startups need as much financial help as they can get; which is why accessing resources is continuously made available through the GSA.  

Entrepreneurs at any stage in the process from aspiring, to early-stage, to seasoned founders, will want to delve into the Global Startup Accelerator Index.

Did you notice any co-working spaces/pitch competitions that are not included?

Do you know of any grants/funding or universities that would be valuable to include in the index?

If the answer to any of these questions is yes or the project strikes an interest, then get involved!

Apply Now! 

Application Deadline: 2020 September 10.
