Once Rare and US-Centric

In venture capital, a Unicorn is a privately-held tech company valued at more than $1 billion. The term was coined in 2013 by Aileen Lee, the founder of Cowboy Ventures, when she sorted through 60,000 US-based software and internet companies that received funding between 2003 and 2013 and found that just 39 tech companies were valued at $1B+. She called them Unicorns to highlight how rare these companies were at the time.

 

No Longer Rare and Increasingly Global

Fast forward to today, Unicorns are no longer rare; and they are increasingly global. As of June 30, 2021; there were 750 “Unicorn” companies. Nearly 1/4 of which are outside the US, China, and India — what we are calling “Rest of World”.

Endeavor’s Role in “Rest of World”

When we look at the early-stage investors in Unicorns outside of the US, China and India, Endeavor Catalyst ranks among the top 5 most prolific Unicorn investors in this category.

With 43% of Endeavor Catalyst’s Unicorns being invested in at their Series A or earlier, Endeavor Catalyst is one of the most successful early-stage investors in Unicorns outside of the US, China, and India.

 

Unicorns that “Grow Up”

As Unicorns “grow up” and exit through acquisition to a public company or by going public themselves, they are no longer referred to as Unicorns. However, they continue being amazing tech companies that transform their communities and often, the world.
