International Business Innovation Association

Founded in 1985 by ~40 early incubator managers and others as the National Business Incubation Association, InBIA currently has 2,000 members representing 60 nations. It is many-times-over the world's largest association of business incubator developers, managers and other supporters of emerging companies. All members are voting members who may elect representatives to the InBIA Board of Directors. The Board is composed of 15 elected members and one member appointed by the President & CEO. Currently board members represent programs in the United States, Canada and France. InBIA is a "big-tent" organization representing mixed use, technology, arts, kitchen and other sector specific incubation programs, as well as accelerators and co-working spaces. The organization has produced a large library of publications (white papers, research reports, how-to manuals, etc.) and organizes training programs and the globe's largest conference on business incubation. Held at different locations, the InBIA annual International Conference on Business Incubation attracts some 650 attendees to participate in more than 60 sessions and workshops. From 35 to 45 percent of attendees are based outside the United States. NBIA also conducts international consulting, facilitates a member Exchange and provides referrals to incubators and to information resources. It annually awards prizes to Dinah Adkins Incubators of the Year in Technology Focus and General & Special Focus categories, including the Randall Whaley Incubator of the Year Award, InBIA's highest recognition, named after its founding chairman.  InBIA also recognizes Soft Landings International Incubators and awards for incubator networks, top clients, graduates and innovations. Dinah Adkins was president & CEO of NBIA from 1988 to 2009 and was a founding member of the association. She joined the industry in 1982 and served as the director of the Ohio University Innovation Center, a campus-based incubator. She is the author of many publications related to business incubation. While originally founded in Virginia, the association is currently registered in Florida and Ohio.  Members and customers can access information on business incubation, the InBIA bookstore and training events at www.inbia.org.
