Thousands of university graduates attempt to make a startup, but most will not succeed. Are the graduates of some universities more frequently successful?
Here are the Top 16 universities with the most number of successfully-funded graduates:
Stanford has the most amount of funded graduates, which is unsurprising as it’s located in the Silicon Valley heart of venture capital.
Seven out of the eight Ivy League Universities (colored green on the chart) are present, but most of the Ivies are in the middle of the chart. MIT and UC Berkeley each have nearly double the amount of successful graduates from Yale and Columbia.
It’s worth noting that Tel Aviv University, an Israeli university, ties Duke University at 21.
