At Least 100 Unicorns Use a One Word .com

Earlier this year, Crunchbase launched The Unicorn Board, a comprehensive list of private companies with a valuation of $1 billion or more.

The curated list includes data on company valuations, total funding, and lead investors. However, domain name data is missing from the list. To remedy that, I compiled domain data on all unicorn companies listed in Crunchbase’s Unicorn Board and released that data in two parts.

The one-word .com domains used by unicorn companies include:
