Who’s Fast Hall of Fame

Each year, Fast Company honors a select group of leaders, change agents, trendsetters, disrupters, and social entrepreneurs in our Who’s Fast issue. Ordinary people doing extraordinary things, our honorees won’t likely appear on a ranking of celebrity CEOs by wealth, fame, and influence. These people excel in the workplace, in the classroom, and in the social arena — everyday places where their contributions demonstrate new levels of heart and hope, energy and engagement, innovation and ingenuity.

Because our winners are honored for a body of work, not just a discrete achievement, their stories have relevance beyond a given year or a given issue.

We bring the Who’s Fast Hall of Fame to you now grouped by area of primary excellence. These stories never fail to inspire and remind us that passionate people with big ideas can still make a difference.
