Fast Company’s annual list recognizes leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in nimble business and impactful innovation.

To produce the 2017 list, the magazine’s editors spent a full year gathering and analyzing data on companies around the globe. For the first time, Fast Company enlisted machine intelligence to help inform the list: Quid, a San Francisco-based startup, used its software to create topographical maps of innovation across more than 40 sectors of the economy.
