(1) Pre-IPO Returns based on Crunchbase News: Unicorns Get More Magical: 2020 Cohort Shows Huge Increase In Valuation On IPO Day “What we found for those unicorns that have made exits is that the 2020 IPO cohort offered up a 117 percent increase between the last known valuation for a company and its valuation upon going public—the highest jump in a five-year timeframe. The median date for these last private valuations is around two years prior to their IPO” Non-venture investment professional returns discounted for lack of access to key opportunities and errors based on lack of valuation and other experience. Accelerator returns based on projected model of complementary equity return. Past results are no guarantee of future performance.
