Measure for Success

Data-driven Innovation Ecosystem Development – Insights from Brazil, Russia, and Canada

However, few empirical studies have systematically assessed their relative performance and impact. This lack of data-driven monitoring jeopardizes the efficient allocation of resources, provision of services, and by extension the success of the incubation programs, their client startups, and innovation ecosystems.


This is what our clients say about us

Now we know where we are

The participation of the incubators of Paraná in the UBI Global Benchmark allowed us to adopt international KPIs as means to measure our management model. The collection and consolidation of the data enabled opportunities for better strategic planning. Now we know where we are and it makes it easier to know where we want to go. The results of the Paraná indicators in the next edition of the benchmark will certainly be much better. We appreciate the excellent services provided by UBI Global to SEBRAE Paraná.

Take the lead to success

The Impact Study conducted by UBI on our incubator network had a transformative effect on our understanding of the factors that lead to success. UBI Global’s work has positively influenced our government’s innovation policy, and helped us make a compelling case for the funding we need to grow the impact of our incubators into the future.
