About Us

Our Story

When we started in 2013, we were a group of 4 like-minded entrepreneurs based in Stockholm who realized that, although there were literally millions of businesses starting (and failing) every year, there was very little concrete data available on what made these businesses a success.

We quickly came to the conclusion that the best place to start gathering this data would be hubs where a lot of entrepreneurial talent gathered – universities and their incubators. UBI Global’s unique partnership with these academic institutions has led to us becoming the thought leader in performance analysis of business incubation around the world. Today, we aim to help business incubators and business accelerators become more efficient and competitive through a comprehensive benchmark where more than 800 incubation programs in over 70 countries have participated in!

Our Approach

To connect corporations with the global business incubation ecosystem.

We aim to matchmake 15,000+ vetted university-linked start-ups, through a network of 700+ business incubators and accelerators in over 70 countries, to fill corporates most important future needs!

“Highlighting the global incubation landscape and best practices will help universities, governments, innovation agencies and corporations to improve the incubators they support and thus enable sustainable economic impact and growth”
