Once again, the leader in the ranking of unicorn startups is none other than Bytedance, the parent company of TikTok that has managed to raise its valuation to reach 140,000 million dollars, a position that it had reached from the results of the top most valuable startups of the world in 2019, if we take into account that Ant Financial takes its capital from Chinese state funds.
At that time Bytedance had managed to obtain a valuation of 75,000 million dollars, so it has almost doubled in value in recent months.
In second place is Stripe: the fintech reached a valuation of 95,000 million dollars after closing a new round of financing in mid-March 2021, thus becoming the benchmark startup in its sector.
In third place is SpaceX, the American aerospace transport company founded by Elon Musk managed to rise surprisingly 8 positions in this ranking and go from a valuation of 31,000 million dollars to 74,000 million dollars in this edition, mainly due to its recent forays into space and for having received a contract to transport supplies to the International Space Station.
Next is another great Chinese company: Didi Chuxing, the great and eternal rival of Uber that in this edition has a valuation of 64,000 million dollars. The company currently has almost 600 million users.
Among the great unicorns that have managed to accumulate a valuation above the unicorn level we can also find the Swedish fintech Klarna, whose valuation grew to 31,000 million dollars after closing its last round of financing for 1,000 million dollars.
