Each 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. 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 that several Israeli companies fresh out of the Startup Nation, the world’s #2 startup ecosystem, were included.
In addition to the noted 50 Most Innovative Companies and the accompanying top 10 companies in various sectors —which include a number of Israeli startups — the magazine recently released a list of the world’s top 10 most innovative companies of 2015 in Israel.
There is no doubt about it, Israel has become a world leader in startup success. Famously titled the Startup Nation, Israel has earned international acclaim for its cutting-edge innovations, startups, and research in the fields of science, technology, medicine, and the environment.
The world’s top most innovative Israeli companies in additional categories include Houzz (#11 in Top 50; #1 in Architecture), ElMindA (#48 in Top 50; #4 in Health Care), Rafael Advanced Defense Systems (#10 in Design), Consumer Physics (#10 in Food), NICE Systems (#8 in Money), FeeX (#3 in Personal Finance), and ReWalk (#2 in Robotics).
Fast Company’s report lists Israeli companies that are currently at the forefront of business, challenging industry assumptions and exhibiting economic ingenuity. From brain imaging technology to the WhatsApp for businesses, these companies born in Israel are changing how we interact with the world.
