Tel Aviv University came in ninth place among the top 50 universities in the world with the highest number of entrepreneurial graduates from undergraduate programs, according to the 2017-2018 PitchBook Universities Report.

PitchBook Data compiled the list by tracking the founders of startups that received the first round of venture funding between the beginning of 2006 and August 2017. Tel Aviv University came in as the highest-ranking university outside of the US, ranking higher than Yale University, Princeton University and Columbia University.
