MISSION

Over 100 US-based unicorns were founded by students at top universities.

 

StartU's mission is to find, feature, and promote the next revolutionary student-led startups before anyone else discovers them. 

 

Our team of 40 Campus Scouts actively sources startups across 9 universities nationwide - including Stanford, Harvard, and Wharton. We cover campus pitch events, interview founders for exclusive in-depth articles, and help VCs quickly scan the student startup ecosystem to easily connect with emerging entrepreneurs.

 

Through StartU, we help entrepreneurs by giving them the early press and exposure they need to succeed. Our featured startups have raised capital from firms including Accel, Lightspeed, Norwest, NEA, and Cowboy Ventures, and have raised over $370M in venture funding to date.
