Here are the highlights of our VC coverage over the past week:
We rolled out our inaugural Unicorn Report, which takes a deep dive into the data behind the billion-dollar company phenomenon. Included in the report is a look at how investors in unicorn rounds are shaping financing terms and a comparison of VC valuations growth to comparable market indices, as well as the most active unicorn investors and more.

We unearthed some interesting trends in our 2H 2015 VC Liquidity Report, including the growing disparity between $1 billion+ rounds and $1 billion+ exits, the lengthening time from first round to IPO and the abnormal percentage of acquisitions in 1H. To see the highlights, click here.
