THE 2019 BEST WORKPLACES FOR INNOVATORS
Every company that applies will be seen and evaluated by Fast Company’s editorial staff before being presented to an elite judging panel. Companies chosen for the Best Workplaces for Innovators list will appear in the September 2019 issue of Fast Company magazine and on fastcompany.com and receive a verified company bio page on fastcompany.com.
The review process deepens and enhances Fast Company’s understanding of each applicant’s business, putting some emerging companies on our radar or introducing us to new initiatives at established companies that may warrant future coverage in the magazine or on fastcompany.com.
Who Should Apply
Organizations must demonstrate a serious and established commitment (e.g., internal incubators, skunk works, hackathons, ongoing education) to building a culture of innovation that yields tangible results (patents, patent applications, new products to market, new systems that enhance operations). Companies and nonprofits of all sizes will be considered.
We’re assembling an impressive list of designers, venture capitalists, thinkers, and social entrepreneurs to evaluate finalists selected by Fast Company’s editorial staff. Entries will be judged on impact, design, scalability, and ingenuity.
