Beauhurst, the platform that tracks high-growth businesses, has produced The Unicorn Report, featuring the top UK companies worth over $1bn.
There were some interesting statistics produced in the report, including; three out of five UK unicorns are based in London and, on average, each company completed more than four funding rounds before reaching unicorn status.
We are seeing companies achieve unicorn status at an ever increasing speed and in the UK we currently have 16 active unicorns. It is suspected that there are other companies that have surpassed the $1bn valuation mark, but are not yet confirmed. These are referred to in the report as ‘invisible unicorns’.
