Salesforce

The World's Most Innovative Companies 2018

Salesforce, a cloud-based customer relationship management software provider, builds customizable platforms that allow companies to organize data from sales, app use, and various other business metrics all in one place. Since being founded in 1999, it has also pioneered a new model for corporate responsibility, which includes auditing payroll to ensure gender and racial pay equality, and following a 1-1-1 model for philanthropy, in which the company pledges to donate at least 1% of its revenue, products, and employee time toward charitable work. That latter effort has turned into an advisory program—Pledge 1%—to help startups do the same in at least one of those three areas. In 2017, Salesforce achieved a carbon neutral footprint for its operations and launched a $50 million impact investment fund to support social enterprises that want to use its platform to further these principles in new ways.
