Tel Aviv University Ranks In Top Startup Colleges

Tel-Aviv-University Stanford, Harvard and Tel Aviv University?
When we think startups and colleges Stanford and Harvard often come to mind. That’s why we are thrilled when we see things like The Startup Madness tournament at SXSWi, wwhich features 8 college startups, none from Harvard or Stanford.

Don’t get us wrong, both institutions are incredible and have fueled our tech growth over the last three decades. However here at nibletz, the voice of startups everywhere else, it’s great to highlight the Penn State’s and Case Western Univeristies of the world.

Anyone who has been to a TechCrunch Disrupt, or South By Southwest has seen the high quality startups that are coming from our Israeli allies. So it’s only fitting that Tel Aviv University now ranks among the top 10 startup schools in the world. Of course Stanford and Harvard rank on the list as number one and number two.

All this comes from cloud computing software company Sage that ranked Tel Aviv eighth in the world for training the founders of “unicorns”, startup firms worth more than $1 billion dollars, at least on paper.

Stanford has produced 51 unicorns, while Harvard has produced 37. Tel Aviv has produced 7 which was good for the 8th place nod.

The top 10 according to Sage are:

  1. Stanford University
  2. Harvard University
  3. University of California
  4. Indian Institute of Technology
  5. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
  6. University of Pennsylvania (invluding Wharton)
  7. University of Oxford
  8. Tel Aviv University
  9. Cornell University
  10. University of Southern California
