Fast Company's editors and writers identified the companies driving progress around the world, and the result is “a globe-spanning guide to innovation today”, from early-stage startups to some of the most valuable companies in the world.

Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan, says: “We saw extraordinary innovation across the board in 2023, but we also saw a handful of clear patterns: the growing footprint and impact of AI, the triumphant return of live events, and great leaps forward in climate tech. We face daunting challenges on many fronts, but the solutions we celebrate in this list give me plenty of hope about the future.”

Fast Company highlighted WMP’s groundbreaking Wolbachia method and collaborative approach to protecting the global community from mosquito-borne diseases. WMP’s innovative use of naturally occurring bacteria called Wolbachia, helps significantly reduce the ability of mosquitoes to transmit viruses to humans. Following decades of research and successful deployments, the World Mosquito Program is now operating in 14 countries around the world.

It's an honour to be recognised among Fast Company's 2024 most innovative companies, and we are immensely proud of our achievements and the strong innovation mindset we cultivate within our organisation.”
