Fast Company this week published its 2018 list outlining the world’s most innovative companies, with Apple scoring the top slot for its role in “delivering the future today,” according to the publication.
“The 2018 edition of the World’s Most Innovative Companies spans more than 350 enterprises across 36 categories,” Fast Company noted. “From the world’s most valuable firm and its continuing transformation of consumer electronics, to a small outfit selling natural gum to preserve rainforests. We hope you’re as inspired learning from these businesses as we were in selecting them.”
Of the top ten corporations on this year’s list, Apple was given the No. 1 slot for its unique “approach to the hardware and software engineering that creates its experiences,” which according to Fast Company “has never been more ambitious.”
“Our North Star is making the best products in the world,” said Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook.
In its extended company profile praising the tech titan, Fast Company noted how “Apple has continually revolutionized the consumer electronics industry.”
