Start-ups shouldn't try to be unicorns—they should be zebras — Quartz
This new movement demands a new symbol, so we’re claiming an animal of our own: the zebra.

Why zebras?

To state the obvious: unlike unicorns, zebras are real.
Zebra companies are both black and white: they are profitable and improve society. They won’t sacrifice one for the other.
Zebras are also mutualistic: by banding together in groups, they protect and preserve one another. Their individual input results in stronger collective output.
Zebra companies are built with peerless stamina and capital efficiency, as long as conditions allow them to survive.
