IGL Evidence Bites

Ready to make entrepreneurship and business support schemes more effective?

At the Innovation Growth Lab (IGL), we have compiled a series of short and actionable Evidence Bites for policymakers and practitioners in the entrepreneurship and business support space. You can delve into the relevant insights we’ve uncovered from experimental research to find out how you can improve entrepreneurship and business support schemes.

Start discovering promising ideas

What you will find


Tried-and-tested ideas to consider when designing your business and entrepreneurship support scheme, with results that may help you to steer clear of approaches with little to no impact.

How to use these Bites

USE THE evidence to improve your schemes

Like any empirical research, the results are context-based. That’s why we count on your practical and localised knowledge to judge which ideas are worth trying in your context.
