In 2014, 33 venture-backed unicorns (private companies valued at $1 billion-plus) were minted in the US, a more than sixfold increase from 2013. Last year, 43 unicorns were born. But through the end of August, only 11 have been produced so far in 2016, prompting the question: Amid the general VC slowdown, what will become of VC-backed unicorns?
To help provide an answer, we've produced the second installment of our PitchBook Unicorn Report, which includes everything from datasets tracking the time between a company's founding and its unicorn financing to a comparison between late-stage VC valuation growth and the Russell 2000 Growth index. In addition:
Detailed tables of recent financing terms for dozens of unicorns
Statistics such as totals of recent VC raised and employee counts
League tables of investors with the most unicorns in their portfolios
