UBI Global, which provides performance analysis of business incubators around the world, has released its 2015 rankings. Ranking third globally is Ryerson University’s DMZ.
“The DMZ performs exceptionally well on a global scale, showing the effect university-based incubators can have on both local and international startup ecosystems,” said Ali Amin, CEO of UBI Global. “It supports small businesses by providing tools and resources that generate unparalleled economic impact, playing a vital role in the development of Canadian startups.”
The news comes just weeks after UBI named DMZ the top incubator in North America. The Stockholm-based research organization benchmarks 340 incubators globally, measured against 50 different performance indicators, including talent retention, economy enhancement, post-incubation relationships and startup survival rate.
“The DMZ helps startups with great solutions succeed by giving them access to our widespread support,” said Abdullah Snobar, Executive Director at the DMZ. “This ranking recognizes our dedication and efforts to foster the development of new entrepreneurial talent and their ideas into sustainable businesses that make an impact in the global ecosystem.”
