UBI Global was founded in 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden to identify where all the innovation hubs are located worldwide and to learn and share what makes them successful. We launched the World Benchmark Study to find common traits and identify best practices. Our goal was to help business incubators and accelerators to improve their programs, become more attractive to start ups, and increase their overall efficiency— and ultimately, their ability to attract investment.
Soon after launching our network, we expanded our services to include a suite of education materials, management tools, communication platforms, and networking events. All so that innovation could multiply and thrive. No matter where it’s based.
Now, as facilitators and thought leaders of this dynamic interactive learning community, we have grown to connect corporations and governments with this global ecosystem of thinkers and doers. Today, our vetted network consists of over 700 incubation programs that are either linked to universities or are privately-, publicly-, or corporate- run. Our map covers over 70 countries— and counting, and our knowledge is sourced from all corners of the world.

“Enabling innovation through impactful collaboration worldwide means we first assemble innovation programs into an interactive learning community, supported by original research and insights. Then, we look for business opportunities to connect them with corporations and government agencies looking to invest in and engage with incubation programs and their startups.”
