Since the term "unicorn" was coined, startups privately valued at $1 billion or more have shifted from a rarity to a more commonplace phenomenon. But what is common is not always clear. Our 2015 VC Unicorn Report digs deep into unicorn financing terms and PitchBook's extensive valuations database to uncover the trends behind the phenomenon.
What we found not only sheds light on the unicorn trend but also lends clarity to the tech bubble debate. Some of the issues covered in the report:
How investors in unicorn rounds are shaping financing terms
Select statistics for 50 unicorns
Comparisons of VC valuations growth to comparable market indices
The report also includes the most active investors in unicorns and analysis on which companies valued at $1 billion+ are best placed to survive a downturn in funding markets.
