The number of tech unicorns has grown very quickly. Eight years ago, there were a dozen unicorns - today, it's 750 unicorns as reported by the Economist! These unicorns are now worth a combined USD 2.4 trillion. The main reason for soaring valuations is more competition among "non-traditional" investors. Just in the past quarter, these "non-traditional" investors in the US took part in 1,800 deals which raised USD 57B in aggregate.
We believe this winning streak with Unicorns will have a similar ending to the Dot Com era during 1999-2001 when rich valuations either fizzled after IPO or never got that far.
