Joanna Glasner at Crunchbase Daily reported on the number of which U.S. public universities graduate the most funded founders. With 63 startup founders raising $1M or more after 5/1/18, the University of Illinois at Urbana Champagne ranks fourth in the country among public schools.
“A lot of students attend public universities to lessen the financial burden of higher education. At last tally, tuition and fees at American public colleges and universities averaged around $6,800 a year, per the federal government. That’s far below the $32,600 mean price tag for private, nonprofit institutions,” Glasner noted
