The speed per sector
Where things get interesting is when you look at the data broken down by sector;
looking aside from simply categorising all those which fall under `tech` as `tech start-ups.`
We wanted to understand how the race to $1billion looks when broken down by the sector which these successful start-ups serve...
Perhaps surprisingly, mobile and real estate start-ups reach unicorn status the fastest, at an average of just 2 and 3 years respectively, closely followed by biotech (5), cybersecurity (5), fitness (5), social (5) and travel (5).
