If you’re going to college to be an entrepreneur, it helps to be near Silicon Valley. Alumni of Stanford University in Berkeley, CA, managed to nab $4.1 billion of funding in 203 startups from 2007 to 2011, with DFJ and Kleiner Perkins leading the funding parade.
On the East Coast, Harvard follows Stanford with $3.8 billion invested in 112 alumni startups, but if you eliminate Facebook, which is an outlier, Harvard drops to $1.8 billion.
