Submit a story to be

considered for StartU

There's no better way to get your startup into the inboxes of investors and students from top universities than by letting us do it for you. All you have to do is share your story.

What founders are eligible to be featured?

At least one co-founder must be a current student or an alum within four years of graudation at a StartU university. We write about student founders working towards any degree - bachelor's, master's or doctorate.

What startups are eligible to featured?

We typically publish articles about startups that are actively fundraising at the seed stage. Startups that are pre-seed or Series A+ will also be considered on a case by case basis. Startups must have a minimum viable prototype and initial customers. Revenue is not a requirement, but is preferred. We do not write about idea stage companies.

How do you decide who to write about?

StartU welcomes applicants of all backgrounds. We are also particularly committed to elevating diverse voices within the student entrepreneurial ecosystem. Starting Fall 2020, we will publish our diversity statitistics every semester.

When will I know if my startup has been selected?

Startups will be notified within 30 days of submission if they have been accepted for an article. We unfortunately cannot respond to all submissions.
