Pet tech financing trends. Global unicorn club. Real estate funding figures.
Greetings from sunny Toronto at the CanTech Conference where I talked about why the sky is not falling in tech land and why 2017 should be a pretty decent year for tech.
The full presentation is below.
But first, some data.
We mapped global unicorn companies valued at $1B+ according to the markets in which they operate. The greatest share of the world’s unicorns (20%) are in the e-commerce/online marketplace category. Airbnb is the most valuable company in this category, valued at $29B.
We analyzed annual and quarterly funding figures as well as deal share by stage within real estate tech from 2012 to 2016. Last year, 4 companies in real estate tech joined the unicorn club (Compass, Homelink, SMS Assist, and OpenDoor Labs).
