The Land of Uni­corns

Bulletin - - Jobs Of The Future -

In the start-up world, the ul­ti­mate goal is to build your com­pany to a share­holder value of at least one bil­lion dol­lars. Such com­pa­nies are called “uni­corns” be­cause they are so rare. The mar­ket re­search com­pany CB In­sights main­tains the highly re­spected “Global Uni­corn Club” data­base. Mem­ber­ship to this ex­clu­sive club cur­rently num­bers 237 com­pa­nies (as of May 1, 2018). Two pre­dictable coun­tries top the list: the US (117) and China (65). The only other na­tions reach­ing dou­ble dig­its are the UK (13) and In­dia (10). Switzer­land has two en­tries (MindMaze and Avaloq). Based on pop­u­la­tion, though, this puts Switzer­land in a re­spectable sec­ond place.
