Unicorns are Startup Companies with a Value of Over 1 billion dollars.

I wanted to talk about a term in the tech industry termed ‘Unicorn’

There are more than 600 “unicorn” companies worldwide. Aileen Lee, a venture capitalist, coined this term. These companies are notable examples, including SpaceX, Robinhood, Airbnb, and Instacart.

Understanding the Term “Unicorn”

Unicorns are rare and are found in 0.07% of startups.

Super unicorns are companies valued at over a billion dollars. For example, in the 90s, Alphabet (Google) was the first awesome unicorn. The 2000s belonged to Facebook, and since the 2010s, eighty private companies have raised money at valuations over a billion dollars.

According to experts, many high-valuation companies are a result of a new wave of technologically driven productivity.

How do Unicorns Get Their Valuations?

Investors and venture capitalists base a company’s value on their hopes for future growth, not its current financial performance. Additionally, unicorn companies have a high valuation despite them not making a profit. This makes it difficult to determine their value. 

Categories of Growing Companies

Now, let’s get into different types of Unicorn Startups.

Minicorn: A mini corn startup has a valuation of over $1 million dollars and is on its way to becoming a unicorn. 

Soonicorn: Angel investors or venture capitalists will fund startups that can enter the “unicorn club.” This is generally more than the startup’s actual worth. When a larger company acquires a startup, it gives them more than their actual net worth.

Unicorn: A privately held startup valued at a billion dollars or more. 

Decacorn: A startup that has a valuation of over ten billion. There are presently eighteen decacorns globally, and ten of those are in the United States of America. Decacorns have a fantastic growth rate, distinctive business model, and revenue model.

Hectacorn: A tech company valued over a hundred billion dollars. Referred to as Super Unicorns like Google and Facebook.

How to Invest in Unicorns

Unicorns do not usually accept small or moderate-sized investments. If you have lots of savings, take calculated measures before investing. The best way for a person to support one is by tracking the unicorn’s growth and waiting if they ever become public companies or IPO.
