The curated Crunchbase Emerging Unicorn Board includes private companies with known valuations of $500 million or more but less than $1 billion, based on Crunchbase data. The list is updated whenever a new company reaches that valuation range or there is a change in valuation for a company already on the leaderboard. Companies that are subsequently valued at more than $1 billion will be removed from the board and promoted to The Crunchbase Unicorn Board. Companies that exit will also be removed from the Emerging Unicorn Board.

We’re working to make the Emerging Unicorn Board a comprehensive resource for you to gain deeper insights into the companies that are likely to be the next unicorns.
