United States of unicorns. New fintech unicorns. Genomics financing trends.
That fintech boom, boom, boom.
We just released our 60-page Q2’17 Global Fintech Report, covering global financial technology investment trends, top deals, active investors, and corporate activity.
Check out some highlights scattered below.
The United States is home to 105 unicorn companies valued collectively at ~$360B. We mapped out the locations of every US-based unicorn and found that after California, New York, Massachusetts, and Illinois, the next-highest unicorn populations are found in Utah and Florida.
