Before we jump into news and our weekly wrap-up of stories, let’s consider for a moment the other side of media -- the holiday movie genre -- as you sit with loved ones wrapped up in cozy socks and matching sets of flannel pajamas. In the weeks preceding Christmas and the New Year, there’s nothing quite like a rom-com taking place in a humble yet charming hometown or anything with Hugh Grant or Will Ferrell. Then again, Eyes Wide Shut is apparently a holiday movie. Happy watching!

Let’s look back on the week’s top stories from PrivCo:

  • Monday, we revealed our latest report, Rise of the Unicorns, in which we calculated and predicted the next batch of billion-dollar companies. Check out the recap of the Top 5 Unicorns-to-be here.

  • For our investor highlight, we looked at the trend of massive investments in NFT startups. What can we learn from OpenSea’s latest round, and what’s next for the booming industry? Check it out.

  • Infrastructure, building codes, and city planning are all set for a revamp, given the political agenda and environmental stakes at hand. See what companies are building the future, literally, in our look at the commercial engineering industry’s top earners. Learn more.

  • Ghost kitchens have risen in popularity given the demand for at-home delivery. But the business model drawn from tech mentality faces food business hurdles. Find out how one ghost kitchen is fighting to stay alive here.
