Distinguishing the incubators and accelerators that are trailblazing the industry allows us to separate average incubators and accelerators from top performing ones and understand why the latter are surpassing their counterparts in terms of such KPI’s as talent retention and post incubation performance.”

The top-5 is presented in alphabetical order, so all five are winners of the competition. “Here at UBI Global we realize that every business incubator and accelerator is different from the next, and in order for us to conduct our research and provide the most accurate rankings and benchmarks possible, we have the difficult task of assigning every incubator a category or group.” High Tech XL was part of the “high Impact”-category.

A High Impact Incubation Program is a successful business incubator or accelerator that is managed, affiliated or associated with a university, that has high impact on its ecosystem and provides higher value to their startup clients than their regional or global peers. They stand out from average-performing incubation programs with better outcomes on economy enhancement, access to funds and post incubation performance indicators.
