Methodology for The Unicorn List

Fortune’s list of unicorn startups is ranked by valuation. (Where there are ties, rankings are based on alphabetical order.) The list is based on a combination of data from PitchBook, CB Insights, news reports, and our own investigation. Be forewarned: The valuations of these companies are in constant flux, and the list you see below may not necessarily reflect the most recent estimates.
