I'm sure you've heard the term unicorn before.

It refers to a privately held startup company that has achieved a $1 billion valuation.

These private companies are rare because reaching the billion-dollar mark is incredibly challenging.

Only 0.004% of all venture-backed companies achieve this distinction – but San Francisco is home to 96 unicorns including some of the biggest in the world like Amplitude, Calm and Brex.
