World & Regional Rankings Released Since 2013

Developed as an output of the World Benchmark Study, the UBI Global world and regional rankings provide a powerful tool to help incubation programs from all over the world to become more efficient and competitive. Through a proper representation of university-linked incubation programs worldwide, the participants were selected, assessed and accepted from over 70 countries in 6 geographic regions. More than 700 incubation program has gone through the process since 2013.

“University-linked incubators are striving to become a global referent in an increasingly competitive sector where it is essential to understand what lays behind its complex ecosystem. For this reason, we pledge to provide them with the necessary tools and insights so they could overcome the challenges and build a sustainable business incubation model” says UBI Global CEO and Co-founder, Ali Amin.
