What’s a Unicorn?

The Billion Dollar Startup Club has 101 companies as of July 2015, with the number one private company valued at $46 billion. It’s no secret, technology has revolutionized entrepreneurship. The explosive growth of tech-based companies is at its highest since 1995, surpassing the dot-com boom of year 2000.

What is the math investors do while an entrepreneur is pitching?

Investors quantitatively assess your opportunity through two questions during the pitch:

1. What is the potential market size; Is the market potential significant enough?
2. What is the entrepreneur’s valuation and is it reasonable?

Neither answers are absolute.
