Every year Fast Company reveals its list of the world’s most innovative companies of the year. With the topic of innovation front and center, Fast Company considers themselves to be a progressive media brand “written for, by, and about the most progressive business leaders”.

Initially I had thought to only mention the top five, but for turning the taxi and town-car industry upside down, I thought Uber deserved a mention as well. After all, it’s not often that a company challenges innovation in an industry dating back to the early 1700’s. The World’s Most Innovative Companies: Risk, Observation, & Measurement
