Here Are 25 Billion-Dollar Companies You Haven’t Heard Of (Infographic)


2 min read


When people interested in business see the word “unicorn,” companies like Uber, Airbnb and SpaceX come to mind. Those brands are constantly in the news, and their valuations are astronomical. But for every flashy unicorn startup that becomes a household name, there are dozens more that stay relatively unknown to people outside their industries. 

To better understand how people think about billion-dollar companies, McGuffin Creative Group surveyed 4,000 people to determine which unicorns had the highest and lowest brand awareness. Generally, it found that companies with higher valuations had higher brand awareness, but there were some exceptions to that rule. Juul Labs, for example, has a $50 billion valuation and 36 percent brand awareness.

People who live in big cities, for example, are likely to know more about Sweetgreen and Bird Rides than the average American. Beauty junkies will likely be surprised how few people knew about Pat McGrath Labs. Here’s a breakdown of the lowest performers from the study.
