A Community for Founders

StartX alumni represent some of Stanford's best entrepreneurs in fields from cleantech and biotech to consumer internet and enterprise software. Our founders are diverse, including undergraduate and graduate students, postdocs, professors, staff, and alumni. We are proud to be building a community of top Stanford founders.

Our founders’ companies have been acquired by the likes of Twitter, Dropbox, Intuit, Apple, LinkedIn, Yahoo, Palantir, Salesforce and Instagram. They have raised funding from top firms such as Greylock Partners, Andreessen Horowitz, Benchmark Capital, and Google Ventures.

They have been featured in major news publications, including Bloomberg, Forbes, Fortune, NBC, The New York Times, TIME, The Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post, as well as TED Talks and the Harvard Business Review.
