It is put together by the magazine’s editors to highlight companies that have displayed impressive innovations in the past year. It is not based on quantitative measures such as patents or R&D spending.
The editors are reviewing companies throughout the year; however, the final list is not chosen until April.
There is no formal entry process or submission form required for nominations. If you want to suggest a company, send an e-mail to email@example.com explaining why the company is interesting.
There is none. We always want to hear about interesting companies.
