As always, it is worth remembering that not all (and perhaps few) of these 369 companies will IPO this year. Many have just crossed the $100M valuation threshold. Others continue to tap into creative sources of capital in the private markets. And some will get out-executed and may never see a liquidity event. However, these companies represent the most promising and highly valued private venture and private equity-backed technology companies in the US.
