Since we give life to our companies, we always think that they’re the best, but if you really wish to find out where does your company stand on a global list of innovative companies, then the Fast Company list of Most Innovative Companies is where you should go and check.
Launched in November 1995, today Fast Company is one of the world’s leading progressive business media brand, with a unique editorial focus on innovation in technology, leadership, world changing ideas, and design. Written for, by, and about the most progressive business leaders, Fast Company inspires readers to think beyond traditional boundaries, lead conversations, and create the future of business.
This year, after 10 years of hard work on building its annual Most Innovative Companies lists by digging the face of the Earth and identifying companies with cutting edge innovations in their industries, the American magazine has decided to come up with its very own submission form for their Top 10 lists by sector. The form will work as a great opportunity for organizations all around the world to get their innovations in front of the entire tech world and make a name for themselves, an opportunity which comes once in a lifetime.
Being on the list will get organisations a smooth entry into the global tech community space, build reputation, credibility, and help in fundraising and understanding competition.
Here are some golden advices which can help your submission form shine and get you on the Most Innovative Companies list:
1) Take Time In Identifying What All Makes Your Company Innovative
Rushed things never last, so if you’re really eyeing a place on that list, take sometime and contemplate over what all products and services sets you apart from other companies when it comes to innovation. Whether it is product innovation or creative innovation or business-model innovation, innovation of every kind counts.
2) List The Projects Which Make You Standout From the Crowd
We all have projects that we’re really proud of and believe that they were something different. Well, it’s time for you to list all the innovative, interesting projects and earn a spot on the the Most Innovative Companies list. Simply stating an innovative product or service might not get that much attention as much as a successful application of that product/service can get. Make sure that the projects are the most recent ones and not something done decades ago.
3) Mention the Impact of the Innovation
What’s an innovation if I doesn’t make peoples’ life better? While mentioning your innovation, do mention its impact on the human population.
4) Keep It Concise but Descriptive
If you know your innovation in and out, you can describe it best even with less words. That’s the USP of a good application form. Of course, you need to be descriptive but don’t go into a dissertation writing mode and vomit all that you can. Take time in perfecting that application because even if your product/service is innovative, a sloppy submission form can be a deal breaker.
If you think your company deserves a chance on the list, fill out the submission form before September 7, 2017.
