New PNW Unicorns 🦄

In addition to Cradlepoint getting acquired for $1B+ last week, Geekwire wrote a great article on Tanium, a $9B+ cybersecurity company that is moving its headquarters from the Bay Area to Seattle.


Here are some of the reasons Tanium’s CEO cited for their move:

  • CEO Orion Hindawi moved to Seattle in June, and the company already had several key executives in the Seattle area
  • Hindawi thought Washington had a more “competent and balanced” political landscape than California
  • After Tanium implemented a work-from-anywhere policy with no pay adjustment, there was a “mass exodus from the Bay Area”
  • Seattle is “unrivaled” when it comes to enterprise software expertise


According to the article, Seattle beat out Denver, Austin, and Nashville to become Tanium’s new HQ. A warm welcome to the PNW’s newest unicorn!
