**The ETC and Accelerate Baltimore are partnering with Emory University’s Goizueta Business School and their Social Enterprise @ Goizueta (SE@G) initiative. One of the key programs for SE@G is the Entrepreneurship Database Program (EDP), which collects data from entrepreneurs through a number of accelerator programs working around the world. The aim is to create a longitudinal study to evaluate how entrepreneurs grow and how supporting accelerators influence that growth. Part two of the application process will collect this data and only share any information in the aggregate. The identity and the nature of  your business will not be disclosed.
