Why should my Incubation Program join UBI Global's Member Network?

To engage with peers around the world and become more effective, efficient, and competitive! We connect you with hundreds of like-minded incubation program managers and empower you to compare your program's impact and performance to hundreds of national, regional, and international incubators and accelerators. Moreover, we promote your activities, highlight your successes, and connect you and your startups with relevant corporate partners, sponsors, and investors.

What are the main differences between free (Member) and paid (Pro) Membership?

Pro Membership entails a more granular analysis of your impact and performance data, deeper insights, and more detailed recommendations. Moreover, Pro Members enjoy discounts as well as priority access to many of our initiatives, publications, and events. Finally, whenever we receive partnership, sponsorship, or investment matchmaking requests from our corporate partners we gauge interest with our Pro Members before engaging the entire network.

For how long is my membership valid?

Memberships are valid for two years from the end of the month in which you were accepted into the UBI Global Member Community. For instance, if you joined on January 15, 2018, your membership would be valid until January 31, 2020. Pro Membership is valid for one year and billed annually. You are welcome to upgrade at any given time.

Are members required to participate in UBI Global's benchmark studies?

No. You can enjoy many of the membership benefits without participating in any of our studies. However, in order to get most value out of your membership, we strongly recommend that you participate in our research initiatives. Participation in our studies provides you with actionable insights and case-specific recommendations how to improve your program. Moreover, it empowers you to directly compare your program's impact and performance to national, regional, and international reference groups. Participation in any of our studies is voluntary and free of charge.
