NBIA provides thousands of professionals with the information, education, advocacy and networking resources to bring excellence to the process of assisting early-stage companies worldwide.

The association is composed primarily of incubator developers and managers, but technology commercialization specialists, educators and business assistance professionals are also well represented. While a preponderance of NBIA’s 1,900-plus members represent U.S. incubators and friends of the industry, NBIA members also come from 58 other nations.
