“A startup is a company working to solve a problem where the solution is not obvious and success is not guaranteed”
-Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker
With all of this collected data, LinkedIn can start to map interesting trends like how these startups are hiring and how they recruit from the LinkedIn Top Companies list.
So who makes this exclusive list? You’ll see some familiar names, some that you didn’t realise could still be listed as a Startup.
- General Assembly
- Aryaka Networks
- Duo Security
- G2 Crowd
- Uptake Technologies
- Stitch Fix
- Sprout Social
- Hyperloop One
- Snowflake Computing
- Moda Operandi
- Credit Karma
LinkedIn has been able to map some really interesting data points based on this list:
Not all about the bay– Although San Francisco takes the top spot- more than a third of the companies listed are based outside of the bay are like New York and Chicago
Women in power- 12% of the companies listed are run by women. Even though that’s only 6 companies it is still double the amount of female of CEOs that appear on the Fortune 500 list.
Older unicorns- Not every company on the list has been valued at $1 billion. This proves that startups don’t need to race for unicorn status to be considered successful.
Tech isn’t the centre of the universe- Over half the companies listed lie outside the tech sector. Education and healthcare are on the up.
So what makes this list interesting to us?
The e-learning industry is well represented by General Assembly, Udacity and Coursera compounding the fact that self-education and upskilling are becoming more and more important to people as the future of work moves more towards AI and automation
Who we’re excited about…
- Glint– A company that’s focussed on employee engagement and people development in the workplace.
- ThoughtSpot– AI driven analytics helping people who aren’t data geniuses gain an overall picture of their company.
- Skuid– Helping Sales organizations get seriously productive when it comes to developing.
