Top digital startups — by valuation


While I’m on this list-making tip, I just noticed SAI is now tracking the most valuable digital startups. This is a useful list and includes details on how the valuations were estimated. I like the fact that the list is global and features some surprises, at least for me:

  • FB and Wikipedia top the list at $9bn and $7bn, respectively
  • London-based Betfair is worth as much as Craigslist ($5bn)
  • Habbo and Linden Labs both worth > $1bn
  • Ning already worth >$500m (that seemed quick)
  • Zazzle at $250m (also seemed quick)
  • Surprisingly, Meebo is worth nearly as much as Yelp (both ~$220m)
  • USV investments make the list: Etsy ($115m) tops Twitter ($75m)
  • Wesabe doesn’t make the cut though rival Mint does ($50m)

Fascinating stuff.
