Which Oregon colleges are churning out startup founders? AngelList knows

Remember back when we ran that survey of the schools that had the most impact on the Portland startup scene? Well, now there’s something a little more empirical.

AngelList—arguably the best thing going for early stage startups seeking funding—has released lists of colleges and universities that appear in founder profiles. How did Oregon schools fare?

In descending order of current impact (ranked by number of startups):

  1. Oregon (22)
  2. Reed (9)
  3. Oregon State (5)
  4. Portland State University (4)
  5. University of Portland (3)
  6. Linfield (2)
  7. Eastern Oregon (1)
  8. Lewis & Clark (1)
  9. Western Oregon (1)
  10. Willamette (1)

For the entire list, visit AngelList college lists.

  1. surprising that the predominate engineer school (OSU) doesn’t account for more founders.

  2. Alas, Rick — just one from Whitman.

  3. Do bootstrapped startup social media agencies count? If so, add another one to University of Oregon & Southern Oregon University! Thanks for keepin’ the scene alive!

  4. Don, You should add your profile to AngelList so that those schools get the tally 😉
