Every week this year, another startup has reached a billion-dollar valuation. (Whether these private market valuations actually hold water is another question.)
We’ve decided to rack up a bunch of these billion-dollar startups — Cowboy Ventures’ Aileen Lee first referred to them as “unicorns” — that didn’t exist five years ago, and that are now valued at $1 billion or more.
For the purposes of this list, we zeroed in on U.S.-based companies that were founded in 2011 or later (since we’re nearing the very end of 2015), and that are private tech companies.
Can you guess who is ranked Number 1 ?
We then ranked them from least to most valuable.
