Online Billion Dollar Startups Since 2004 [Infographic]

Each month there are literally tens of thousands of companies started around the world. Every single one is started by people who have a dream of hitting it big. They say all you need is a dream and an iron will, and everything will go your way. This might very well be true. However, it doesn’t hurt to have a little bit of luck when it comes to timing as well. If you come up with a good idea, there is nothing stopping you from making it a billion dollar startup. That is if your dedication is solid as a rock.

Out of all the companies started, especially online, there are only a few that will ever enjoy the moment of calling themselves a billion dollar startup. This is not because the other ideas aren’t good, but because their appeal to the general population didn’t match a bid that high. The most recent billion dollar startup is of course Instagram. It’s a startup that we have heard a lot about in recent months. You might remember Instagram’s now infamous privacy update that made pretty much everyone rage. Several thousands of people even quit using the service just because of the company’s obnoxiousness.

There are of course other billion dollar startups aside from Instagram that have emerged since 2004. There is no word yet what valuation Pinterest has (at least not that I am aware of), but I am sure it’s safe to say that the company is pretty close to being a billion dollar startup, if they haven’t passed that already.

By having a quick look at a fresh infographic from Staff, we quickly see that out of all the thousands and thousands of companies started each month, there are only a few that get to call themselves a billion dollar startup. As a matter of fact, as few as 13 online billion dollar startup companies have started since 2004. But why should this scare anyone from starting their own online success? The short answer to that question is that it shouldn’t. It should inspire anyone to create a company they feel is missing online. You never know, people could come to love it and use it enough to make it a billion dollar startup. Have a look at this infographic called, Billion Dollar Startups, and soak in the inspiration. Are you the next founder of a billion dollar startup? You are the only one who can answer that question.
