ANDE Research Initiative

ANDE’s Research Initiative aims to answer the most critical questions on small and growing businesses (SGBs) by supporting research that is both academically rigorous and relevant to practitioners.


ANDE also collates the most important research on SGBs from around the world. ANDE members benefit from a more comprehensive resource library, as well as access to a quarterly research newsletter that summarizes current research on key topics of interest.
