I am always getting asked by clients who are companies that are leading the way in innovation, how they do it etc. So when I saw this list, I thought it worth sharing. The list is based upon the innovation premium which is:
“a measure of how much investors have bid up the stock price of a company above the value of its existing business based on expectations of future innovative results (new products, services and markets) . Members of the list must have $10 billion in market capitalization, spend at least 1% of their asset base on R&D and have seven years of public data”
Sounds pretty heavy and I am sure it cuts out many smaller companies but innovation and creativity in the corporate world must be measured on results.
The top five on the list are:
- Intuitive Surgical
- Tencent Holdings
It makes me really glad we use Salesforce! Check out the rest of the list here
