Why should we become a UBI Global Member?

To become more competitive and efficient! We help you to assess your performance so that you can answer the question "How well are you doing in comparison to others?". We also connect you with your international peers, highlight you and your startups to international corporations, and give recognition if you are among the best-in-class.

What are the main differences between paid vs. free membership level?

We provide a more in-depth access to data, insights and research analysis on your benchmark performance. Outside of different discounts, we also prioritize paying members for events and conferences, service releases, and program promotion to international corporations.

For how long is a membership valid?

As a basic member, upon acceptance, you will be signed up for two years without having to apply again. Pro members are signed up for one year and billed annually. You are welcome to upgrade at any given time.

Can we become a member without participating in any benchmark studies?

Yes of course. But your membership journey will not be as efficient as if you would have participated. Many of the insights, best practices and events will be connected to the different studies where you will gain more in-depth knowledge upon participation.
