Points of Pride: Companies with CMU Roots

Carnegie Mellon stands out among the world’s best universities because our ambitious, creative and committed faculty and students use their time at CMU to advance their ideas and the world. Here, a classroom project becomes graduate research and then a start-up company, which eventually grows into a global powerhouse corporation. Tomorrow’s leaders are starting their revolutionary companies at CMU today.

We are extraordinarily proud of all the students and faculty who have created companies that have gone on to become household names, lead their industries or are making life easier, richer and more fun. Here are just a sample of some of the visonary ideas whose roots can be found here at Carnegie Mellon.
