UBI Global achieved a major milestone in 2023 - we turned 10! That’s right, we’ve been serving the world’s business incubators and accelerators for a whole decade. Through the years, our organization has remained flexible and changed with the industry, and now we are offering even more benefits along with new membership opportunities.
What’s new at UBI Global?
We bought a tech company! In order to enhance our membership benefits and provide maximum value, we decided that the best way to serve our community would be through technology. The UBI Global portal will enable us to provide access to features and tools to members only, providing an exclusive platform for our members to network, share knowledge, receive news specifically on our industry, and more.
The benefits of UBI Global membership
If you’ve spent time searching the internet, you can agree that easy access to “information” doesn’t ensure that you will connect with the most accurate, reputable, or timely content. As an authority on business incubators and accelerators, we offer our members a level of confidence in trustworthy opportunities and information that you are less likely to access through free resources. This includes UBI Global's original research, corporate matching opportunities, and the ability to add on the Benchmark Tool application.

The great thing is that membership works both ways; not only do our members receive information and opportunities from us, but they are also able to distribute their own events, news, and opportunities and form impactful collaborations with peer programs from around the world. Access to a global network of other business incubators and accelerators is a powerful tool to share knowledge, learn best practices, and find new resources.
Announcing new membership levels for the interactive community of business incubators and accelerators
Perfect for young programs, non-profits, and new incubator or accelerator managers eager to learn and explore the global innovation ecosystem, the Basic membership offers two users the opportunity to explore and interact with other incubators and accelerators on the UBI Global digital portal, gain valuable knowledge from the content library, and nominate startups for corporate matching opportunities. Basic members can also contribute to the portal by submitting their own news, articles, whitepapers, and events. The Benchmark Tool add-on is available to Basic level members.
Large programs, mature organizations, and incubators/accelerators with the desire to achieve the next level of excellence should opt for the Premium membership. Premium memberships enable ten team members to explore and interact with other incubators and accelerators including enhanced in-portal messaging features, gain valuable knowledge from the content library, and nominate startups for corporate matching opportunities.
What are the main benefits of going Premium?
Premium members are granted more users on the portal that can explore and interact with other incubators and accelerators, gain valuable knowledge from the content library, and nominate startups for corporate matching. One of the biggest benefits of going Premium is the ability to contribute to the portal by submitting opportunities for open innovation from their own organization or their corporate partners twice per year. Additionally, Premium members gain access to original research and premium content.
Is there a free membership?
In order to be the best organization we can possibly be, offer our members the most value, and deliver more content, opportunities, and world-class events, UBI Global had to eliminate free membership. Like many of you, our organization has stakeholders to answer to and wants more resources in order to grow and expand our presence. Our new technology will enable us to build an essential portal of tools that becomes an integral part of successful innovation.
As always, however, the World Benchmark Study will continue to be a free activity without requiring membership, and open to any organization that meets the criteria from anywhere in the world.
