The purpose of this project is to test the coverage and accuracy of the Incubator Seed Data using the hand-collected data on Incubators in Five Ecosystems as a benchmark.

Specifically, this project fulfills point 6 of the Expected Outcomes by June 2019 of the Kauffman Incubator Project:

6.The seed data will have at least a 70% baseline accuracy and coverage of incubators compared to results from hand collected data on 5 ecosystems, as measured by the data analysis.


The five ecosystem incubators are:

City State Incubator Name
Washington DC Inclusive Innovation Incubator (In3)
Washington DC AU Entrepreneurship Incubator
Washington DC Global Development Incubator
Washington DC Halcyon Incubator
Washington DC The Hatchery
Burlington VT Vermont Center for Emerging Technologies (VCET)
Austin TX Austin Technology Incubator
Austin TX IncubatorCTX
Austin TX Economic Growth Business Incubator
Austin TX ACC Bioscience Incubator
Austin TX Bunker Labs
Austin TX Galvanize
St. Paul MN University Enterprisee Laboratories
Minneapolis MN Discovery Launchpad at UMN
St. Paul MN Lunar Startups

The datasets to test against are (as tables in the incubators database, also available as tab-delimited text files):

  • Incubators -- 2137 records, combining the records in CIAIncubators and USIncubators
  • CIAIncubators -- 1603 records, combining incubators identified in Crunchbase, INBIA, and AngelList
  • USIncubators -- 707 records, combining state and regional incubator lists found as a part of the US Incubators project
