2014 Tech IPO Pipeline Report

Last year, CB Insights identified 472 tech companies that represented the cream of the crop within VC and private equity portfolios, and below is the result:

  • 472 Tech IPO Pipeline companies identified in December 2012
  • 48% have exited or raised additional financing since the list was issued
  • 57 have exited in for an aggregate value of $44 billion
  • 171 of the companies have raised additional financing totaling $5 billion

While we enter to the new year, CB insights takes a fresh look into into the fastest-growing, most highly valued private companies in technology. The 2014 Tech IPO Pipeline has 590 investor-backed private technology companies in the United States today with valuations, real or rumored, of greater than $100 million and who are demonstrating significant momentum based on CB Insights’ proprietary private company Mosaic ratings. According to CB Insights, many of these companies just crossed the $100M valuation threshold and, with the time to IPO increasing significantly, have their work cut out for them before they can even ponder the option of going public. Others among this group will never actually breakthrough to the level needed to be deemed public market worthy, or will be acquired along the way. And some will fall short, get out-executed, and may never see a liquidity event.

And among the report, it highlights a familiar title for readers: “The Billion Dollar Valuation Club”, and it grows. In our previous post Welcome to the Unicorn Club: Learn from billion dollar startups, we also have listed a billion-dollar worth club with various data. Here for the Billion Dollar Valuation Club, the list is not strange to us at all.

There are 26 companies on the list that have raised a financing round at a real or rumored valuation of $1B or more, CB Insights says. The full list of companies is below.
