FastCompany_logoEach year, award-winning tech magazine Fast Company spends months gathering and analyzing data in order to generate its annual report on The World’s Most Innovative Companies. In addition to the noted 50 Most Innovative Companies and the accompanying top 10 companies in various sectors — which included a number of Israeli startups — the magazine recently released a list of the top 10 most innovative companies of 2016 in Israel.

The list is a guide to the state of innovation in economy, featuring the businesses whose innovations are having the greatest impacts across their industries and our culture as a whole. Therefore, it’s not surprising to see a representation of companies originating from the Startup Nation.
