The UBI Global World Rankings 
of Business Incubators and Accelerators 2023

World & Regional Rankings of top Incubators & Accelerators - Released Since 2013

Developed as an output of the World Benchmark Study, the UBI Global world and regional rankings help incubation organizations to identify the areas where the gap between their standard and that of the industry is the largest or if they are setting the bar for excellence. Through this insight, we provide a powerful tool to help organizations from all over the world to become more efficient and competitive.

Our research is based on a proper representation of business incubation organizations worldwide; each participant is selected, assessed, and accepted into the study. Participating organizations come from over 90 countries in six geographic regions. More than 1,100 business incubators and accelerators have participated since 2013.

“Business incubators and accelerators are striving to become the standard in successfully launching innovative startups. However, their local and regional ecosystems are complex and dynamic, and their global competition is fierce. For these reasons, we pledge to provide them with the necessary tools and insights so they can overcome their challenges and build a sustainable business incubation model. Our goal is to support them in best strengthening their organizations among their international peers and also launching their collection of entrepreneurs onto the global stage in the best way,” says UBI Global CEO and Co-founder, Ali Amin.
