Stanford’s at the hub of venture universe, but most VCs went to other schools

It can sometimes seem, from the myopic vantage point of Silicon Valley, that most venture capitalists and founders emerge from Bay Area schools like Stanford University or the University of California, Berkeley.

But the number of VCs that fit that description is much smaller than that, according to a Crunchbase study of 4,500 venture partners in the U.S. and Canada.

Only 426 had degrees from Stanford, making it No. 2 on Crunchbase’s ranking by that measure, and Berkeley came in at No. 8 with 80.
