Our mission is to find the next Mark Zuckerberg before Accel and the next Evan Spiegel before Lightspeed.
Many of the world’s most transformative companies – including Google, Facebook, and Apple – have been founded by students, recent alumni, or recent dropouts of just a handful of universities. At StartU, we have built a network of 64 campus leads and scouts who are graduate and undergraduate students at those universities to find and feature content on these startups – before anyone else discovers them.
Our team operates at 12 top universities, including Stanford, Harvard, and MIT. In addition to finding the next Zuck, we are cultivating a community of students who are passionate about entrepreneurship and venture capital. The strength of this community extends beyond the college or graduate school years – and we look forward to many of our team members building, advising, or investing in the most transformative companies in the years to come.
