In its March issue, Fast Company names the 50 “World’s Most Innovative Companies”.

The list was topped by Amazon, Google and Uber … not many surprises in their Top 10, although I humbly confess — Luddite that I am — that I did not recognise #8 Twilio, and once past the Top 10, my recognition rate fell well below 50%! Test yourself.

But getting closer to home, Fast Company also presented its list of Top Ten winners in the Not-For-Profit sector, and they are:

  1. Pledge 1%
  2. GiveDirectly
  3. The Movement for Black Lives
  4. DataKind
  5. New Story
  6. Hive
  7. Chan Zuckerberg Initiative
  8. Good Ventures
  9. Charity Network
  10. Fund for Public Housing

A mix of ‘enablers’ (ways/tools to give) and ‘doers’.

What do you think of that list, boys and girls?

They also nominated a ‘Social Good’ category:

  1. Chobani
  2. GoFundMe
  3. Zipline
  4. Nike
  5. Unilever
  6. Patagonia
  7. Qlik
  8. Fitwel
  9. Yazda
  10. Alphabet

With both sets of selections, Fast Company includes a link to a story it has written about each organization’s innovative noteworthiness. I found these quite informative, even when they didn’t quite convince me to endorse the selection.

Worth a browse.
