“Many InBIA members are quietly solving urgent problems in accessing basic resources (energy, water, food), healthcare and education. Others are successful retailers, tech startups, food truck owners, manufacturers and service providers. They are thriving in rural and urban areas, and in developing countries. I wish I could give a shout out to every one of the 60,000+ companies with which InBIA members work every day – most are founded by unsung heroes who should be recognized as essential to the engine of sustainable global economic growth.”
InBIA’s President & CEO
A global community of ecosystem builders
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.
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.
Through “The Exchange,” our interactive online platform where members can collaborate, create communities, share resources, ideas, and relevant content, members can easily connect with one another across borders, time zones and industries.
