Chapter 4: Fiddling around with the startup engine: exploring acceleration patterns in technology ventures
Chapter 4 brings our attention toward the heavy use of accelerators for digital start-ups, and the need to know how typical accelerator affect important outcomes like investor readiness and attractiveness of high-tech & science-based ventures to commercialize. The authors investigate by looking at the relationship between accelerator-based experimental learning and outcomes across indicators of venture performance and identified the emergence of distinct learning paths over time, culminating in different venture outcomes upon exit from accelerator. They explore linkages between these learning paths and venture conditions of technological readiness and prior market knowledge in the team. The findings provide insights that are important for accelerator design and practice.
