SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) is a non-partisan federal advisory council that serves as an independent source of advice and counsel to the President, Congress, and the Small Business Administration on economic issues of importance to women business owners. Members of the Council are prominent women business owners and leaders of women’ business organizations.

In addition, NWBC hopes to gain insights into the factors, both structural and individual, that affect women’s participation in incubator and accelerator programs. To accomplish this, NWBC has acquired the services of a research firm to conduct a crosssectional survey of female entrepreneurs and managers of business incubators and accelerators to better understand female participation in, utilization of, and outcomes derived from incubation and acceleration programs. The survey will consist of three separate questionnaires targeting female entrepreneurs who have not participated in business incubation or acceleration programs, female entrepreneurs who have participated in business incubation or acceleration programs, and managers representing business incubators and accelerators. Each questionnaire will take between 12 and 18 minutes to complete (see below for the estimated burden analysis of E:\FR\FM\10OCN1.SGM 10OCN1 61366 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 197 / Friday, October 10, 2014 / Notices each questionnaire).

The data from the survey will be rigorously analyzed and compared to relevant pre-existing quantitative data on female entrepreneurs and business incubators and accelerators to draw conclusions about current trends and generate leads for further NWBC research. In addition, the results will be interpreted in consultation with subject matter experts and relevant stakeholders to develop best practice policy recommendations to increase female participation in business incubator and accelerator programs and improve the quality of services those programs deliver for women.
