A unicorn is a startup company valued at over $1 billion. The term was coined in 2013 by venture capitalist Aileen Lee, choosing the mythical animal to represent the statistical rarity of such successful ventures. Unicorn Tears is a play on words - acknowledging that are far more startup failures than there are successes. Ninety-two out of 100 start-ups fail in the first three years - and that is avoidable. They fail because of `self-harm' rather than external factors.
