#WOTW – Word of the Week – Unicorn

01 Jun #WOTW – Word of the Week – Unicorn

#WOTW: Unicorn – as well as a mythical creature and a currently popular plastic pastel thing with glitter on, a unicorn is a start-up company that has grown to a market capitalisation of over $1 billion. It is very relevant in ‘disruptive’ times. When coined in 2013, there were only 39 but the numbers are rising exponentially to about 300 now. Most notable are perhaps Google, Uber, Pinterest, Airbnb. Which begs the question what is a start-up! All tech companies start somewhere, sometime. See next #WOTW.
