Which unicorns are worth joining for massive upside now?

With Pinterest having filed for an IPO alongside Lyft, Uber, and Slack, it's a little too late to "get in on the ground floor".

With that in mind, what up-and-coming startups are worth joining now that might net a large cash-out after a few years of earning shares?

Off the top of my head, Airbnb and Stripe seem like the best options right now but I'm curious if anyone thinks there are a few others or if we are entering a new age of startups?

  • Why would it be a good time to join before IPO? Their stocks will tank hard due to large cash outs and probably won’t bounce back after a year or so. Especially with the looming crisis. Also usually they tighten up their hiring pre IPO so the bar will be artificially higher.

    IMO would be better to join post IPO after their stock prices start to bounce and negotiate for more stocks. Or something that will likely IPO in 2 years and negotiate for more stocks as well.

      The "something that will likely IPO in 2 years" is what I'm specifically asking about.

    Fictiv, Exterro and Cloudability in my area are doing some interesting things. I think they are at least a few years out from an IPO however.
