We are a global community of entrepreneurial ecosystem builders

InBIA members are passionate leaders who help entrepreneurs transform their dreams from possibilities to prosperity. They are located all over the globe in both urban and rural communities, operating in both developed and emerging economies, working with both the privileged and the underserved, journeying hand-in-hand with a total of more than 30,000 startups. These companies and aspiring entrepreneurs are solving some of the world’s most urgent problems, improving quality of life and making our communities better – more resilient, more inclusive and more prosperous. I am so proud to serve this community of committed professionals.” -Charles Ross, InBIA President & CEO

Our members spearhead economic growth in their communities

Incubators &
Entrepreneurship Centers

Entrepreneurship centers in our network include incubators, accelerators, small business development centers (SBDC’s), and other organizations. These centers support startup companies in rural, urban, and developing countries around the world.


The explosion of coworking and makerspaces has created a renaissance era in shared workspaces. Shared spaces enable diverse groups of entrepreneurs, remote workers, and other independent professionals to share resources, knowledge, and networks.

Entrepreneurship Centers

Our network of universities are critical for the commercialization and incubation of startups. Some of the more prominent industries include “deep tech” fields like biotech, clean energy, and advanced manufacturing, which are led by students and researchers that leverage university labs and resources to launch their companies.

Government & Economic Development Organizations

EDO’s and government policy makers are quickly realizing that startups and small businesses drive job creation faster than large corporations. The rise of innovation districts and investment in entrepreneurial economic development is critical for job creation and economic prosperity.
