Venture Capital Conference Power Ranking

Curious about what college conferences attract the most venture capital funding? We were too, so we dove into our 3Q 2014 data to find the answer. Not surprising to see both the Pac-12 and Ivy League do well with many of their schools having a reputation for entrepreneurial graduates (although removing Cal and Stanford from the Pac-12 drastically alters the conference’s ranking). But after the top two? We weren’t really sure until we saw the graphs ourselves.

The below interactive chart will enable you to filter and compare the VC financing metrics by conference, school, industry vertical and location. Play around with it, and feel free to let us know if you have any feedback – research@pitchbook.com.
