Stanford University Directly Investing in Their Students’ Startups

Stanford has been a catalyst to arguably the biggest startup community in the world and is taking another aggressive step towards supporting the constant stream of entrepreneurs and tech startups flowing out of the institution. According to an article this week in TechCrunch, Stanford has set up a $3.6 millon grant for StartX, an independent accelerator for Stanford students and alumni run by founder and CEO Cameron Teitelman. The fund dedicates $1.2 million a year for the next three years and is a great support to the young program.
