Beyond the
Top 100

For ten years, we have identified the world’s Top 100 Global Innovators, those elite organizations at the very pinnacle of the world’s innovation landscape.

Of the thousands of patent applicants that pass through our volumetric bar, we rank each on influence, globalization and success metrics against all other entities in the analysis, finally producing the 100 that sit at the top.

This year, for the very first time, we share insights from the Top 100 backfile to reveal leaders beyond the Top 100 list. Diving into the world’s top 14,000 innovators, we share the top global innovators across 15 key industries.
