A Unicorn is a private company value at more than 1 billion USD. Becoming a founder of a unicorn company is a dream that many entrepreneurs hope to achieve.
To be considered a unicorn, the private business must reach a valuation of at least one billion dollars, and that’s no small feat.
People often attempt to break down what it takes to become a unicorn founder. While hard work and dedication are usually assumed requirements, along with a stellar concept, everyone knows that it takes more than that to reach the stars.
A recent chart was released that hoped to shed some light on the question, showing which universities can claim the most unicorn company founders as alumni. Here’s what it had to say.
Statista used data from Sage to create an infographic showing which schools come out on top in regards to molding unicorn founders. The included educational institutions hail from all around the world including, but not limited to, the US, India, England, Israel, and Canada.
The top school on the list, Stanford University, claims 51 unicorn founders as alumni while runner-up Harvard University has 37. Rounding out the top three is the University of California with 18 (Go Bears!).https://www.inc.com/larry-kim/unicorn-universities-where-most-billion-dollar-company-founders-went-to-school.html?cid=search
