MIT Technology Review magazine published its second annual list of the world’s most innovative technology companies highlighting businesses whose work is changing industries and lives. The list includes six topics: Energy, Transportation, Computing and communications, Web and digital media, Materials, and Biomedicine.
According to Brian Bergstein deputy editor of Technology Review:
We look for companies that are setting the agenda in an increasingly important market, on the verge of disrupting an established market, or creating an entirely new market. What does it mean to set the agenda? It doesn’t necessarily equate to having the biggest market share, or else Intel and Microsoft would be in the TR50. Instead, we look for companies whose ideas and technologies are being imitated by other companies.
