Stanford still produces the most startup founders
Reproduced from Pitchbook's Universities Report
Stanford University (yet again) topped Pitchbook's annual ranking of undergraduate colleges producing the most tech entrepreneurs who've raised venture capital between 2006 and August 15, 2017. UC Berkeley came in close second, followed by MIT and Harvard.
Why it matters: While many entrepreneurs start their companies years after leaving school, others do so just after graduation or even while students (e.g., Facebook's Zuckerberg or Snap's Spiegel). So looking at these rankings can provide some clues as to what resources or environment can be conducive to entrepreneurial endeavors.
