Recently spotted: A unicorn startup that is both profitable and from the Midwest
Now here's something really different:
A unicorn startup that is both profitable and based in the Midwest. Should we call it a uni-unicorn?
The rare beast is Chicago-based Uptake, which has raised $45 million from GreatPoint Ventures and other investors, giving it a $1.1 billion valuation, reports The New York Times.
Uptake partners with well known companies to create software for gathering and interpreting data. CB Insights reports a total of 139 unicorns.
