5 Soon-to-Be Unicorns in 2024

Which Companies Are on the Cusp of Reaching €1 Billion Valuations?

The number of new unicorns in Europe dropped significantly last year, reaching its lowest level since 2018. Only 10 startups achieved a €1 billion-plus valuation in 2023, down from 46 the year before, according to PitchBook data. This decline was due to a lack of mega-rounds and ongoing valuation corrections across all stages.

Investors predict a recovery in venture dealmaking in 2024, which could increase the number of Europe’s unicorns.

Here is a list of companies across Europe’s main Tech Hubs that might cross the €1 billion threshold this year:
