On Wednesday Business Insider released their annual list of the 100 Most Valuable Startups. Topping the list were a few names that came of no surprise including Facebook, Groupon, Twitter, Wikipedia, and LivingSocial. A bit more surprising, but not insensible by any means, were the likes of Craigslist, Vente-Privee, Palantir Technologies, Airbnb, and Jawbone—names that haven’t been occupying headlines as readily as their more infamous counter parts (Unless of course you’re Airbnb and the publicity is for the wrong reasons) but successful in their own right. Notable changes from last year’s list include a few major drop-offs and those who went on to greener pastures in the form of an IPO. Click to see the full list.
