ISDI Accelerator ranked World Top 5 Public Business Accelerator

ISDI Accelerator is ranked World Top 5 Public Business Accelerators by UBI Global, which has compared 364 programs from 82 countries. The ranking states that ISDI Accelerator is above the global average, outperforming their global peers with regard to the value they provide, to their innovation ecosystems and client startups, as well as the attractiveness of the programs themselves.

Madrid, 7 November 2019.- Last evening UBI Global presented The UBI Global World Rankings of Business Incubators and Accelerators 2019 – 2020 during the World Incubation Summit in Doha. In the category World Top Public Business Accelerator 19/20 ISDI Accelerator was ranked amongst the top 5. Compared to previous rankings there is only three categories presented this year; world #1, World Top 5 and World top 10.

“At ISDI Accelerator we feel very proud to be ranked among the world’s top 5 accelerators, as measured by UBI Global. There are many other business accelerators doing an incredible job, so it’s amazing to be here. This is only possible thanks to our team, partners, investors, mentors and of course to our startups; this is an award for all of them, too. And they have our commitment to continue working hard to be able to help them to achieve their goals,” says Miguel Ángel Díez Ferreira, Director at ISDI Accelerator.

During previous year’s rankings, 259 incubators and accelerators participated in the process, which can be compared with this year’s 364 participating organizations in UBI Global World Rankings 19/20. The ranking shows that ISDI Accelerator is well placed internationally in terms of the number of companies that are accepted to the acceleration programs, access to funds, the availability of a great network and outstanding performance in nurturing entrepreneurship and innovation.

Since the birth of ISDI Accelerator in 2014, we have developed 14 Open Calls, distributed 45 million Euros, accelerated 154 startups from 64 countries, startups have obtained 183 million Euros in funding after being part of our programs and our Net Promoter Score is 92 (scored by startups).

About ISDI Accelerator

ISDI Accelerator is born in 2014 with the objective of channeling the entrepreneurial interest of the ISDI students and to boost and professionalize the startup market in Europe. Our first startup acceleration program, IMPACT, marked a milestone in the continent thanks to the collaboration between public entities, corporations, educational entities, investors and, of course, startups.

Since then we have developed dozens of incubation and acceleration programs, we have created, trained and accelerated hundreds of startups, and thousands of companies have already applied to our programs.

All this has led us to be listed in the top positions of the European and global rankings as one of the most important accelerators in Europe, and in 2019 one of our programs (IMPACT Connected Car) was chosen as the best startup acceleration project of 2019 by the European Commission.

But we don’t do it alone. We are accompanied by our parent company, ISDI, and also hundreds of mentors, teachers and experts, the best investors in Europe, our partners and colleagues in the different acceleration programs and the corporations and institutions we work with.
