How to Start a Startup

Nov 12, 2020

From Facebook to Dell, many of the most iconic companies have been started in dorm rooms. Starting a company in college is one of the most influential decisions you can make in setting yourself up for a meaningful and successful career.

In an effort to support young and exceptional talent, Contrary has created the most comprehensive resource list for startups at every major entrepreneurship university. Until now, these resources have been hard to find, disorganized and often out of date. Our Venture Partners have compiled and centralized everything you need to know about the entrepreneurship ecosystem at 35+ universities across North America, including clubs to join, classes to take, and where to find funding.
