Research

GIEE is addressing the dearth of research on an "Experienced Economy." We collected  and are aggregating data from each of our global senior and intergenerational entrepreneurship summits in Dublin, London, Brussels, New York, Phoenix, Washington, DC, St. Louis, Australia, New Zealand and Santiago, Chile.

In addition, GIEE is designing research in collaboration with the Gerontological Society of America (GSA), Babson College, Washington University at St. Louis, and the Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (GEM).

We will be publishing our research results on this site, as well as highlighting independent research reports. Still, more needs to be done and we are eager to collaborate with others to measure the social and economic impact.

The study is funded by the Canadian Education and Research Institute for Counselling (CERIC). We are delighted at this opportunity to aggregate and analyze knowledge and insights about those contributing to a new "Experienced Economy."
