Introducing the Maven Unicorn Challenge

Looking for real world data to practice your data visualization skills?

Need a new project to showcase on your portfolio?

We have just what you need, including another chance to win a free all-access membership to Maven Analytics!

We’ve just added a brand new dataset to the Data Playground, containing a complete list of the world's unicorn companies.

This dataset is the perfect opportunity to flex your data visualization skills, whether that be on Excel, Power BI, Tableau, or other data viz platforms!

To go along with this release, we’re launching the Maven Unicorn Challenge and giving away a free all-access membership to the winner.

We’ll share more about the challenge details below, but first let’s talk about the data…

About the dataset

A unicorn company is a private company with a valuation of more than $1 billion, and today there are over 1,000 unicorn companies around the world!

  • This dataset contains a csv table with 1,074 records, one for each company

  • Each record contains details on the company's current valuation, total funding, country of origin, industry, select investors, and the years they were founded and became unicorns

How to play the Maven Unicorn Challenge

For this challenge, your task is to illustrate the current landscape of unicorn companies around the globe, presented in the form of a single-page report or dashboard.

Here’s how to submit your entry:

  1. Share a LinkedIn post mentioning @Maven Analytics and the hashtag #mavenunicornchallenge, with your single-page visual based on the challenge objective above

  2. Complete the official challenge submission form to make sure you are entered for a chance to win

Make sure to follow Maven Analytics on LinkedIn for updates on the challenge and invite your connections to play along!

How to win

Finalists will be chosen by the Maven team based on insights, creativity, design, visualizations, and overall storytelling ability. The winner will be selected from the finalist pool by the Maven team, via live voting.

What you can win

As part of the Maven Unicorn Challenge, we'll be giving away 1 annual all-access Maven membership completely free of charge. The winner will get access to all of our Excel, Power BI, Tableau, SQL, Python, and Machine Learning courses, all with direct support and coaching from our expert instructors.

No purchase is necessary to participate. As always, this challenge is open to both current Maven subscribers and everyone else.
