Equitybee Unveils List of Top 100 Startups Based on Investor Demand After 2022 Economic Crash
The Equitybee 100 list ranks the most wished-for startup companies by investors on the Equitybee platform post-market collapse
PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Equitybee, the employee-focused stock options funding solution, today announces an exclusive ranking of the most in-demand private companies, the Equitybee 100. The list represents a comprehensive view into the most dynamic segment of the economy—the startup industry.
Each year, Equitybee issues a list of the 10 pre-IPO companies generating the most interest among its investor network, which spans industries including spacetech, foodtech, consumer tech, enterprise software, fintech and many more. That list has been expanded to include 100 companies. Due to global economic tumult, Equitybee has seen seismic shifts in demand in the startup market among the investor community.
Since April 2022, Equitybee’s analysis shows how investor interest in several companies that were previously in high demand during Q4 2021 has evolved. In light of the current economic challenges beginning with Q2 2022, the list of the most in-demand startups among the Equitybee Investor Network is being published at the beginning of the quarter rather than at year’s end, to provide a current state-of-the-union perspective.
“The Equitybee 100 list reveals the companies that demonstrate significant demand from Equitybee’s network of 20,000 investors who have witnessed the global economy change dramatically,” said Oren Barzilai, Equitybee co-founder and CEO. “Investor demand has increased in these companies, and during the current market turmoil we will be focusing on supporting employees from high-demand startups.”
The first 20 companies on the list are:
- Cockroach Labs
- Impossible Foods
- The Boring Company
- Master Class
