Daniel Fehder aims to improve our understanding of how to increase the number of innovative ideas that enter the economy and increase the representation of all societal groups in innovation and entrepreneurship. His research focuses identifying frictions that inhibit entrepreneurs and understanding how programs like startup accelerators can help alleviate them.
In addition to his academic research, he also maintains the Startup Accelerator Ranking Project (SARP) along with Yael Hochberg and Susan Cohen. SARP is considered the gold-standard ranking of US-based startup accelerators. It is designed to help entrepreneurs make better decisions about which accelerators to appy to and attend.
