UBI Global Maps the Global Innovation Ecosystem

The study is in its 5th iteration and is being sponsored by Qatar Development Bank, a global leader in economic development.
Practical Data & Tools Based On Benchmarking
The study provides data and practical tools that incubators and accelerators can use to fine-tune their efforts, understand the recipes for success, and set goals- all to better support and drive innovation. The study attracts more than 600 programs from over 70 countries to benchmark themselves against their peers. The study is administered online in the form of a benchmark survey. Programs that are linked to universities, as well as those that are publicly-, privately-, and corporate- run are invited to take part.
