In the tech world especially, investors are always on the search for the next unicorn – a private company valued at one billion dollars or more – to sink their money into for a big payoff further down the line. High-profile examples of such companies are SpaceX ($36 billion) and Airbnb ($18 billion). As CB Insights data shows, the country where investors are most likely to find a company with such potential is currently the United States. With 228 unicorns based there as of June 2020, second-placed China comes a distant yet still impressive second with 122 . In Europe, The UK leads Germany with 25 unicorns to 13.

 The World’s Most Valuable Startups

 Within the last few months, tech startup Uber could once more raise its equity funding to $7.4 billion. Its worth has now risen to $51 billion, according to its latest valuation. That is double the worth of Airbnb, which is third in the ranking of the world’s top 10 startups. However, this period of soaring growth might come to an end, as voices like that of venture capitalist Bill Gurley or Satya Nadella, Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft, advocate more caution with investments in this area. Both say corrections are overdue in the market. This could well lead to changes in the list of billion-dollar startups.
