Meet The New Members Of The Most Creative People In Business Community

From the big screen to the runway to outer space, you'll be inspired by these new inductees to the MCP 1000.

Fast Company is excited to announce the addition of 107 new members to the Most Creative People in Business 1000, an exclusive community of influencers in business from across the economy and around the globe.

These mavens of business, art, technology, and social good were chosen from among the creative forces featured in the magazine during 2015. Selected for their vision and fearlessness in today's quickly shifting business landscape, they come to us from the worlds of tech, retail, fashion, health care, space science, and entertainment. They hail from Detroit, Beijing, Stockholm, Tokyo, Tel Aviv, Vancouver, Miami, and Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Whether they're digging into news about the world's most important issues, helping to save the environment, or reinventing retail, they'll continue to be a major part of our stories, newsletters, and events. And of course, they'll be as active as ever across social platforms—follow along with the hashtag #MCP1000 and our MCP 1000 Twitter list.
