Travel and Mobility Tech’s unicorn club—meaning the exclusive group of privately-held startups valued at more than $1 billion—has significantly grown in recent years before being cut by almost 30% in 2021 driven by the pandemic and the hype of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs) that took many companies public through so-called shell companies.

  • In early 2018, there were 22 startups in the Travel & Mobility Tech context with a billion-dollar company valuation
  • The list grew to 45 companies at the end of 2019
  • In late 2020, the list contained 49 unicorns
  • This was then cut down to 36 players by mid-2021
