4 3 DEFINITIONS & METHODOLOGY 01 DEFINITIONS THREE TYPES OF BUSINESS INCUBATORS BUSINESS INCUBATOR MANAGED BY OR AFFILIATED TO UNIVERSITY (-IES) Primary objective: To facilitate entrepreneurship and support early stage (new) ventures through a systematic (mid-long term) and extensive incubation process that includes services and infrastructure Quality-controlled intake of clients (startups) and regular time-bound exits in form of graduate startup clients BUSINESS INNOVATION CENTER Dedicates its efforts and resources to help entrepreneurs with innovative ideas and turn those ideas into viable, successful and sustainable businesses Core mission is to accelerate innovative entrepreneurship at the local level, through the customized delivery of a comprehensive range of professional support and incubation services (pre-incubation, incubation, postincubation) targeted at innovative startups, spin-offs, entrepreneurs and SMEs BUSINESS ACCELERATOR A fixed cohort-based program that focuses on catalyzing growth of ventures through an array of intensive mentorship and educational services to prepare client startups for market access 02 Quality controlled intake of clients (startups) and regular time bound exits in form of graduates DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RANKING AND BENCHMARKING RANKING AND BENCHMARKING ARE NOT THE SAME RANKING Developing a framework and methodology that measures the performance of university business incubators allows both for ranking and benchmarking. At UBI Global we have different types of ranking cateogories depending on the relationship with the university. An incubator is ranked depending of belonging to these category groups, but benchmarked against all. The difference between ranking and benchmarking is that ranking implies the ordering of the incubators according to their performance, while benchmarking means the comparison of one particular incubator taken out of the sample against a point of reference which in this case are top performing incubators. In other words, if we were BENCHMARKING to think of this difference in terms of numbers - ranking process would attribute an absolute number to each of them (the position in the series). Whereas benchmarking would be the ratio of incubator performance and that of the reference line (top global average, top regional average etc.) At UBI Global we follow a two pronged approach to rank and benchmark university business incubators. First, a thorough ranking process identifies the top performing incubators (which become the reference line), second a benchmark process that stacks incubators against the reference line to identify the strengths, weaknesses and best practices associated with improving the performance of benchmarked incubators. 6 - Definitions & Methodology

The same drops 48% for average incubators client startups, which translates to significantly lower economical assistance provided by average incubators to their client startups when compared to a top performing incubator GLOBAL AVG 04 SURVIVING (GROWING AND PROFITABLE) STARTUP CLIENTS THAT MAINTAIN OPERATIONS AND ARE EXPANDING AFTER GRADUATION 58% GLOBAL TOP AVG GLOBAL AVG 49% 19% ANALYSIS - The survival rate of the graduates of top incubators clients startups stands at 58%, mostly generated by their higher capacity to provide resources, competence development and financial support. The ratio reveals that the clients at top incubators have 19% higher survival (growth and profitability) rate than the clients at an average incubator * GLOBAL TOP AVG - THE 10% BEST PERFORMING INCUBATORS 11 - Sample and Landscape

11 Simon Bond Karen Brooks An exclusive interview with Simon Bond, Director at SETsquared Centre, Bath and Karen Brooks, Projects Director at SETsquared partnership What is SETsquared s business model? What tips would you give to other incubators so they can have a sustainable business model? The business model of SETsquared incubator is a membership model, one in which high growth potential startup companies that meet our criteria, pay a membership fee, in return for business acceleration services and premises. A business acceleration support package of services is made up of mentoring, regular business review panels where the business plan and strategy of the member company is reviewed by external serial entrepreneurs. Our charter is to benefit and accelerate our companies. So, it is a deliberate decision we have chosen to not go the equity route. We feel that it might prejudice our neutrality so we have stuck with the membership fee model. As for a revenue model, incubators that think they ll be able to make money out of incubation are a bit naive. Certainly, it s possible to be self sufficient but no incubator is going to become rich. One tip could be to add additional service around your existing model, for instance... READ MORE ABOUT 1. How does SETsquared spend their operational budget? 2.
