TechRound’s Shortlist – Which UK Universities Have The Most Successful Startup Founders?

At TechRound, we have shortlisted the University Alumni that have set up and are running some of the most successful startups in the UK. We aim to highlight the hard work and innovation coming out of UK universities and also discover which Universities are best for entrepreneurship and lead to startup success!

From charities, finance to tech businesses, some of the most interesting startups have been founded straight out of Universities or through friendships and connections made on campus.

If there is someone you would like to add to the list, please email us directly. Please see our shortlist below!
