Forbes’ 30 under 30 proves it— Dorm rooms are one of the best places to launch a new venture

This morning, Forbes published its annual “30 Under 30” list featuring the brightest young entrepreneurs and change agents including five Dorm Room Fund founders. In addition to the list, Forbes also shared a deeper look at the data that makes up a 30 under 30 recipient. One of the questions they asked is “Where were you when you launched your venture?” And nearly a quarter of all respondents launched their venture in their dorm room.

At Dorm Room Fund, we’ve always believed dorm rooms are one of the best places to start a venture. Since Dorm Room Fund’s inception in 2013, we’ve funded 98 companies across the country. This year, five of our founders, and one of Dorm Room Fund’s very own investment team alumni is honored by Forbes. A huge congrats to Stacey Ferreira of Forrge and Daniel Fine of Glass-U who are reinventing retail and ecommerce, Rebecca Liebman of LearnLux who is transforming financial education, Christopher Gray of Scholly who’s leading the social enterprise category, and Tim Hwang of FiscalNote who’s topping the list for Law & Policy.
