The list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world. Half of the companies on this year’s MIC 50 list are appearing for the first time.
“Innovation is what our company is built on. It touches everything we do each day and we’re incredibly proud to receive this recognition,” says co-CEO Trina Spear.
“We will continue to challenge the status quo and continually raise the bar of excellence in medical apparel for a group of people that deserve it more than anyone,” says co-CEO Heather Hasson.
Heather Hasson and Trina Spear, FIGS co-founders and co-CEOs are the recipients of the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for the Greater Los Angeles Region in 2018. They were also recognized as two of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs by Goldman Sachs’ Builders and Innovators Summit in 2018.
This year, Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries and every region. They also judged nominations received through their application process.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy.
“Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we’ve generally associated with startups,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.
