“As a general rule, startup cities cluster on the coasts,” writes BestColleges.com.  “The heart of West Coast entrepreneurship lies in Silicon Valley, spreading north to Seattle and south to Los Angeles, while East Coast hubs are in Boston, New York and Philadelphia. Not surprisingly, about half of the schools on our list are located in these six cities; the rest are scattered throughout the Northeast, Midwest and Mountain West states. Nearly all of these entrepreneurial powerhouses are large research universities, as big schools often have the vast and dynamic business, engineering, and liberal arts programs needed to stimulate the flow of ideas.”
