The tech industry is gaining some serious pace and startups whose investors think they are worth more than a billion dollars are now rising. As the billion dollar stars come up, they come in small numbers and thus the name Unicorns was strapped with them.

Unicorns not only use funds to expand themselves externally but also they attract a lot of talent in the industry by paying high salaries. We’ve taken up some data from Crunchbase Unicorn Leaderboard and evaluated as who pays the most on an average annually.

Even we were surprised to see Cloudera on top of the list, leaving tech unicorns like Uber, AirBnB and Dropbox a long way down the list. The ride-sharing giants did not even make it to the top 10.
