NYC Unicorns.001

Recently, I took look at the 13 NYC unicorns that have post money valuations exceeding $1B in New York City as a result of their last funding round.  Today, we took a look at some NYC startups that approaching unicorn status using some data from our friends at Crunchbase.  In addition to dollar amount of the most recent valuation, I have included total equity funding, year founded, and number of funding rounds to further the analysis.  To keep the focus on companies that are approaching unicorn status, companies that have raised down rounds were excluded. This list was compiled from that data retrieved on 1/20/16 and does not include companies that underwent liquidity events (acquisitions or IPOs).
