Emerging technology businesses face considerable challenges when bringing a new product to market. History shows that startups have a significantly higher success rate when they have access to resources and advisors such as those provided to tenants and affiliates of the Florida Innovation Hub at UF.
A study by Inc. magazine and the National Business Incubator Association (NBIA) revealed that while 80 percent of new businesses fail within the first five years, 87 percent of startups affiliated with incubators survive. This statistic is four times higher than the national average for business success. The Florida Innovation Hub at UF is a member of the National Business Incubation Association (NBIA) and follows the best practices developed and supported by that organization.
