Bubble chart showing large US companies

Bubble chart showing largest US startups defined as privately owned companies. Companies are plotted along two axes showing current revenue and total funding received so that the ranking is easily visible. No observable trend or correlation exists between both dimensions.

Uber has received exceptional funding. In order not to squeeze other bubbles together an axis break has been used for the x-axis.

Technically, a fourth dimension with discrete values is added by grouping bubbles by color. Companies that are headquartered outside the Silicon Valley receive a distinct color.
