Billion Dollar Startups


May 28, 2015

New data from CB Insights shows that recently funded billion dollar startups may have priced themselves out of the market. Last year, 6 VC-backed companies had been acquired for over USD 1 billion via M&A by May, totaling USD 30.9B. This year, there has been just one “unicorn” exit. The analysts at CB Insights say the M&A market could pick up as 2015 progresses, but as the data clearly highlights, the big exits haven’t been there for VCs this year so far.  Compounding the issue is a paucity of IPOs.
