This infographic was created a few years ago, however, the stats about the number of startups in the world didn't change a lot since then. We add here some updated data on the number of unicorns among startups:

  • The probability among all VC backed startups to become a unicorn is still at about 1%
  • As of January 2021, there are more than 500 unicorns around the world. Variants include a Decacorn, valued at over $10 billion, and a Hectocorn, valued at over $100 billion.
  • Bytedance (China) now has a valuation of $146B. China is promising, don’t you think so?
  • Europe continues to become stronger: Record late-stage activity mints $25B worth of new European unicorns.
  • There was record liquidity for unicorns in 2020; though, there still remains over $725B of unrealized unicorn value only in the United States 

As you know, "a unicorn" is a startup that hits a $1 bln valuation. How close or far are you to this number? Check your company value with our free startup valuation calculator. And learn about how many startups are there in the world from the infographic below:
