Fintech and Internet Software & Services were ranked second with 14 unicorns each followed closely by Big Data (applications and infrastructure) which had 13. Despite the proliferation of on-demand companies, there have so far only been 6 which have seen billion-dollar valuations, half of which are outside the US.
