Things are happening so fast these days it’s a puzzle how to stay informed unless you follow the MIT Technology Review whose mission is to identify important new technologies, deciphering their practical impact and revealing how they will change our lives. They have just released their 2014 most innovative companies list.
The 50 companies are innovators that invade new, low-end markets and displace existing businesses. Apple and Facebook are not on the list but Walmart and Google are. The number one company is a DNA sequencing business called Illumina.
It’s worth reading about each one- why it’s a leader and how it’s making strides in this modern computer age.
It’s an amazing world we live in!
