June 27, 2014

The University Business Incubator (UBI) Index has ranked Ryerson University’s Digital Media Zone (DMZ) fifth in the world and first in Canada among university-affiliated business incubators. This is a marked improvement over the 2013 rankings, where Ryerson came in at 25th. TEC Edmonton, a partnership between the University of Alberta and the City of Edmonton, also improved this year, ranking tenth in the world. Western University’s Western Research Parks also made the list this year, in 22nd place. “The Digital Media Zone is an exceptional incubator. It generates outstanding economic impact and performs strongly against our global benchmark, especially on economic enhancement indicators,” said Dhruv Bhatli, Co-Founder, UBI Index. “This signifies that entrepreneurs at the DMZ perform much better than the global average, benefitting from higher growth and survival rates.” DMZ News Release | WesternU News Release | UBI Rankings
