InBIA research pursues projects, initiatives, and activities to advance the field of entrepreneurship training and education, promote industry-specific best practices and trends, and broaden the global knowledge base on entrepreneurship practices.


The IMPACT Index is a survey designed to measure the economic impact incubators, accelerators, coworking spaces and entrepreneurship centers have in communities across the United States. As a valued member of your region’s entrepreneurial community, we would like to invite you to participate! Survey responses will be utilized to create a database that generates tracking of performance metrics across comparable programs.

Goals of the IMPACT Index 

  • Performance – Comparatively benchmark your center’s performance across a broad range of program models, performance metrics and demographics
  • Reporting – Develop custom performance reports for your investors and stakeholders based on a robust national dataset
  • Marketing – Incorporate validated impact data in your marketing campaigns
  • Industry Trends – Identify new models and trends in entrepreneurial ecosystems
