With 18 start up founders, and a median capital per founder of over ten and a quarter million dollars, University of Maryland students found formidable, high achieving tech startups.

Dominating the Ivy League universities, Stanford and Caltech, the University of Maryland ranked #2 in a recent ranking of universities by their technology entrepreneurship. Created by Howard Marks, co-founder of startup accelerator StartEngine and senior VP at Disney Interactive Media Group, the 2013 StartEngine College Index ranks universities by their number of technical startup founders and median investment per founder. These are the schools that “investors should be frequenting and making angel investments in,” says Marks.
