CB Insights put together a list of 50 future unicorns (companies that we think will eventually be valued at $1B or more), which Fast Company wrote about here. Clients can view our Expert Collection of 2020’s future unicorns here.
To identify companies, we used our Mosaic algorithm, a metric that combines a company’s financial health, the amount of traction it has, and the strength of its market. We discussed how our Mosaic algorithm works to predict startup health and success in our whitepaper here.
We used the same method for our 2015 list and our 2019 list, of which 52% and 34% of our picks have become unicorns (since publication), respectively.
