The World Benchmark Study of Business Incubators and Accelerators 2021-2022 is conducted by UBI Global, a Swedish-based innovation intelligence company and community.

This is the sixth iteration of the study that has attracted thousands of incubators and accelerators from 90+ countries around the world to self-assess their performance and impact for analysis, study, benchmarking, and ranking by UBI Global. Our proprietary framework has been developed and honed in close collaboration with a Research Advisory Board that includes industry experts and thought leaders in innovation with the aim of assisting business incubators and accelerators in becoming more efficient and competitive, graduating more successful, quality startups with traction.

Mapping the global incubation landscape and revealing best practices helps universities, governments, innovation agencies, and corporations improve the innovation ecosystems they support. Research, analysis, and knowledge-sharing in the process of the World Benchmark Study enable sustainable economic impact and profound growth and enrichment of the
programs that participate.
