Europe’s going to need a bigger unicorn stable soon.

Last November, Europe’s unicorn startup count was 60 — since then it’s increased to 76. Nine European unicorns have also publicly listed, via an IPO or SPAC — including Arrival, Darktrace, UiPath and Wallbox. That's over a tenth of 700-strong pool of unicorns worldwide.

We’re likely to see many more in 2021 — so far GoStudent, Scalable Capital, Tractable, Bought By Many, Printful, Gorillas, Lendable, Starling, Blockchain.com, PPRO, Bitpanda, Shift Technology, Vestiaire Collective and Alan have. (You can share this article with non-members — it goes into detail on some of these recent unicorns.)

To help you keep track of it all, Sifted’s team has compiled a list of Europe’s unicorns using data from European Startups and our own research — with valuation estimates from Dealroom. We’ll update the list whenever a new company hits the billion-dollar valuation.

To make the list, companies must hit the following criteria: headquartered in Europe; founded in 2000 or later; private (not listed or acquired). Please let us know if we’ve missed any at [email protected]
