SurveyMonkey becomes the latest tech startup to achieve a $1B+ valuation, courtesy of an equity stake obtained by TPG Capital. TPG's investment is part of a deal in which SurveyMonkey, a developer of survey-building tools for websites, will acquire many of the assets of top competitor Zoomerang. Other startups in the $1B+ club include Airbnb, Dropbox, Square, Workday, Twitter, and (for now) Facebook.
