Crowd Companies Members Receive Forbes Top Innovation Honors

Forbes List 2016

By Carl Bohlin, Member Success

Five Crowd Companies members and one of its founding members were included in Forbes’ 2016 World’s Most Innovative Companies list, released in mid-August. We’re happy to congratulate council members from the following companies:

  • Visa, #27
  • MasterCard, #30
  • Adobe Systems, #36
  • Dassault Systèmes, #57
  • Colgate-Palmolive, #72
  • Autodesk (former founding member), #47

According to Forbes, companies are ranked by their “innovation premium”: the difference between their market capitalization and a net present value of cash flows from existing businesses. More information on the ranking process and criteria can be found here.

At Crowd Companies, we’re excited to work with leaders from all of our member organizations, helping them overcome innovation challenges by sharing expertise and moving to action with each other’s help. When members come together, it’s gratifying to hear their validation of thoughts and concepts, and all the “a-ha!” moments that require additional discussion post-event. I’m already looking forward to seeing next year’s list, wherein I’m certain we’ll see even more members represented. Congratulations, all!
