UBI Global’s research team collects your data via a comprehensive survey. We then analyze programs separately according to groups including university, public, private, and corporate. The study attracts more than 600 incubators and accelerators from over 90 countries.
This is the sixth iteration of the World Benchmark Study conducted by Swedish-based UBI Global, an innovation intelligence company and community of business incubators and accelerators. We use a proprietary analysis framework developed in close collaboration with our advisory board composed of industry experts and thought-leaders in innovation.
The World Benchmark Study offers the opportunity to obtain national and international recognition as a top-performing business incubator or accelerator in the world. Participating programs not only gain ranking information and benchmark assessment but also global recognition through press and media coverage.
Each program that participates in the World Benchmark Study receives its own data-driven impact and performance analysis in the form of an intuitive scorecard infographic. This infographic is the perfect tool to communicate to stakeholders by including it in annual reports, funding applications, client startup information packs, partner marketing, and social media .
Profiles of participating incubators and accelerators as well as their client and alumni startups are promoted through various events held by UBI Global in response to multinational corporations seeking new technologies, innovation, talent, and/or investment opportunities.
Through customized slide decks, publications, webinars, workshops, white papers, guides, and the new Global Innovation Studios, participating programs can access a wealth of incubation and acceleration information, insights, and best practices.
Incubators and accelerators that participate in the World Benchmark Study are invited to attend the World Innovation Summit 2022 where they can network with peer programs and corporate innovation managers, build international partnerships, discuss trends, challenges, and opportunities in the industry, learn the results of the World Rankings Report and celebrate their achievements.
To participate, your incubator or accelerator must be a member of UBI Global's interactive learning community, which is free.
