The University of Colorado Boulder is gaining notice in all the right places – again.  

For a second year in a row, Forbes named CU-Boulder among the top 20 most entrepreneurial research universities in the nation. This year, the university ranked No. 18 of the 50 listed, up from the nineteenth slot in 2014.       

The 2015 listing notes CU-Boulder’s crash courses on pitching start-up businesses to angel investors. Taught by the school’s Silicon Flatirons Center for Law, Technology & Entrepreneurship, the Crash Course Series for Entrepreneurs explores legal and business topics key to launching new ventures.  

University of Denver also made the list again this year, claiming the No. 32 slot.  

The two Colorado schools are in prestigious company. Stanford University took top honors for the third consecutive year, while Massachusetts Institute of Technology and University of California, Berkeley hold second and third place. 

Americas Most Entrepreneurial Universities list is now in its third year. Forbes ranks research universities based on entrepreneurial ratios – the number of alumni and students who have identified themselves as founders and business owners on LinkedIn against the school’s total student body (undergraduate and graduate combined).
