The New Economy's Innovation 40 Build a New World Order

LONDON, ENGLAND--(Marketwired - April 2, 2014) - Innovation: what has for long been a mere buzzword has come to be perhaps the single-most important factor in building a brighter future. Granted, the term has been flaunted by many whose understanding of the concept leaves a lot to be desired, but there are a growing number of companies and individuals whose actions are best described as genuinely innovative.

In order to better understand the major players, The New Economy has announced its Innovation 40, which encompasses the most innovative individuals and companies of the past year.

Innovation takes various forms and can be seen in every major industry. What's more, consumers rank innovation high on the list of qualities they wish to see exhibited by a brand, so the rush to spark change has been enthusiastic.

As well as widely recognised names such as Jeff Bezos, Lego and SpaceX, The New Economy's Innovation 40 includes a number of lesser-known players such as Wang Shu, Intuitive Surgical and Corning.

The Innovation 40 is made up of only the most worthy candidates spearheading what we believe to be the biggest advances of our age; whether in space travel, artificial intelligence or cleantech. Each of The New Economy's Innovation 40 has or will have a hand in changing the world for the better.

To see the list in full, head over to The New Economy website or read the new Spring issue of the magazine, available in print and on your iPad now.
