UT Austin ranked 10th for top universities producing VC-backed entrepreneurs
For the second year, PitchBook, a private equity and venture capital research firm, has put out its Top 50 Universities Producing VC-Backed Entrepreneurs list. UT Austin was No. 10 overall.
The ranking is based on the number of founders that received venture capital funding from 2009 through the end of July 2014, based on the founders’ undergraduate alma mater.

"It’s the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting."
"Our lives are like a complex musical score, Tsukuru thought. Filled with all sorts of cryptic writing, sixteenth and thirty-second notes and other strange signs. It’s next to impossible to correctly interpret these, and even if you could, and then could transpose them into the correct sounds, there’s no guarantee that people would correctly understand, or appreciate, the meaning therein. No guarantee it would make people happy. Why must the workings of people’s lives be so convoluted?"
