Calling All MBA Startups

StartupHas your MBA program recently graduated the founder of the next unicorn? Are startups from your B-school swimming in pools of venture capital cash? We want to hear from you.

Since 2013, Poets&Quants has annually gathered and compiled a list of the top startups to recently come out of MBA programs. For a refresher, here’s how it works. To be included, the startup has to have been founded in the past five years and must have at least one founder who graduated with an MBA from anywhere in the world during the same time frame.

This year’s time frame is January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2016. So, to be included in this year’s list, a startup must have a founding date and one founder must have graduated with an MBA sometime within those dates.

The methodology for the ranking is simple. We will place the startups in order of their funding amount. If the company has been sold, we will include the sale amount (if disclosed) in lieu of the funding amount. To nominate a startup, please complete the survey here or contact Poets&Quants staff writer Nathan Allen at nathan@poetsandquants.com. We will take nominations from now through the end of this year.
