Illinois Startups

This crowdsourced list includes companies that were founded by people who were, or are, part of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, whether faculty, staff, students, or alumni. Founders are categorized according to their affiliation at the time the company was founded. For example, if a company was founded by an Illinois student in 1983, the founder will be listed under the "Student" category, not under "Alumni".

We'd love to hear from you! This is a crowdsourced list, so we need your input. If you would like to submit a correction or addition, just fill out this short form.
