MIT Technology Review’s 50 Smartest Companies

As part of its July/August 2017 issue, MIT Technology Review published its list of the “50 Smartest Companies.” The list, put together by the magazine’s editors, highlights companies that have displayed an efficient combination of technological leadership and business acumen over the past year. The businesses on the list are not necessarily the biggest or most quantitatively profitable, though companies such as Google and Facebook do make an appearance, but features those whose business models allow for technological innovation.

The list serves as the Review’s best guess as to which companies will be dominant in the future. This doesn’t guarantee that they will become supremely successful, but it does mean that they have the potential to create and dominate new markets in an increasingly competitive business environment, according to MIT Technology Review.
