Startup Nation: The most valuable VC-backed company in each US state

California isn’t the only state with successful startups. We’ve created an interactive map featuring the most valuable company in each US state.

Silicon Valley is the undisputed tech capital of the US—but that doesn’t mean California is the only place that produces valuable companies. To highlight VC activity in the rest of the country, we’ve created an interactive map showing the most valuable venture-backed company in each state and the District of Columbia.

Hover over each state to see HQ location and funding information for its most valuable company, and click to see the company’s free profile. All valuation data is current as of September 30; when no valuation data was available for a particular state, we included the company with the most total VC funding.

Some of the valuations above are estimated. In addition, two companies have been omitted. Outcome Health of Illinois and Mozido of Texas reached $5.5 billion and $2.4 billion valuations, respectively, with their most recent equity rounds. But due to troubles at each company, it's unlikely they've retained those valuations.
