The company tracked founders that received their first round of venture funding between January 2012 and October 2022. The five ranked Israeli universities have collectively produced over 2,400 entrepreneurs from their undergraduate programs during this period, founding over 2,000 companies and raising over $73.8 billion in capital investment. Tel Aviv University and Hebrew University were also featured in the top 50 undergraduate programs for women entrepreneurs, at spots 20 and 45, respectively.
