After 15 months, 300 hours and 100 charts, here is what researchers discovered about creating billion-dollar startups.
Ali Tamaseb, a founder turned venture capitalist at Data Collective VC, recently spent 300 hours gathering data on billion-dollar startups. He generated 100 charts exploring their history and outlined dozens of valuable insights--all in a quest to learn what billion-dollar startups look like at inception.
Tamaseb gathered data on 65 key factors from all 195 unicorn startups based in the U.S. His work included all startups since 2005 that have publicly reached a valuation of more than $1 billion.
