Live as we are in an IPO drought, new data points on unicorns’ financial health are annoyingly scarce. Unicorns — private technology companies worth $1 billion or more — have become an asset class of their own. crunch base counts 1,386 global unicorns, worth $4.8 trillion. CB insights counts 1,180 worth $3.8 billion. Regardless of which number you think is more accurate, it’s clear that unredeemed unicorns represent one of the largest pools of paper wealth in the world.
