Fast Company has just revealed the 50 Most Innovative Companies of 2017. Each year, the keystone for relaying all things technology, business and design delves into the data metrics of a substantial amount of corporations—analyzing their major successes (“heartstrings and purse strings”) in the past 12 months. Amazon was crowned with the no. 1 spot “for offering even more, even faster and smarter.” More specifically, the e-commerce mainstay has transitioned from a book seller in 1994 to a reliable purveyor of every inanimate object you can imagine. Trailing the victor are a ubiquitous horde of major businesses spanning Google, Uber, Apple, Snap, Facebook as well as Netflix.
