The founders of Intel went to prestigious graduate schools. Gordon Moore went to Berkeley for undergrad and Caltech for his PhD. Robert Noyce got his PhD from MIT. Andy Grove got his PhD from Berkeley.

Prestigious graduate school is far from a private high school.

Wikipedia on Andy Grove: "He escaped from Communist-controlled Hungary at the age of 20 and moved to the United States where he finished his education."
