WATERLOO AMONG TOP SCHOOLS FOR GRADUATES WHO FOUND STARTUPS > $1B

The University of Waterloo is among the top-ranked post-secondary institutions in the world when it comes to graduates who create “unicorns,” or startups that are valued at more than $1B. In a recent research report, UWaterloo placed 11th in the world for graduating entrepreneurs who founded these types of companies. Such companies include Kik Interactive, Instacart, Wish, and Jasper, all of which were founded by graduates from the school. With six grads responsible for four unicorns, Waterloo was ranked just behind the University of Southern California, and just ahead of INSEAD—a graduate school of business with campuses in Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. “I think it is fantastic news,” said Jay Shah, director of Velocity, the UWaterloo program that supports startups. “There are a lot of outstanding institutions on the planet, and so I think that is a pretty outstanding ranking.”
