ISSUE – Oct. 25 | The 25 most valuable VC-backed companies in the US

Some things haven’t changed much in the last year: Uber is still the most valuable VC-backed company in the US—by a longshot—and Airbnb still takes the number two spot.

But beyond those two tech juggernauts, quite a few private companies have moved up or down the list in recent months. In April, Elon Musk’s SpaceX picked up more than $200 million of a round that’s expected to top $500 million, valuing the aerospace business at nearly $25 billion and pushing it into the number three spot. And Stripe, an online payments company, more than doubled its valuation with a $245 million fundraise in September, bringing it to sixth place in our list. Several other businesses, including Instacart and Slack, have also upped their valuations.
