The unicorn stampede of 2019 has resulted in many of the highest-valued Disruptor 50 companies of past years finally making themselves available to the investing public. But Uber, Lyft and Pinterest have plenty of company. A total of 40 of the 184 companies named to the CNBC Disruptor 50 List over the past seven years have made it to IPO day, 38 of which remain public today. Twenty-three others have been acquired by large public incumbents, including Alphabet, Facebook, Johnson & Johnson and Unilever.
A few others haven't been as successful in the long run, as seven companies from Disruptor 50 lists past are now shut down.
Below is the complete history of the CNBC Disruptor 50, with details on each of the 184 start-ups to make the list between 2013 and 2019.
