Innovation has been a core value of UrbanFootprint since our inception in 2015. And today we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve been named among the World’s Most Innovative Companies of 2021 by Fast Company, in the category of Social Good.
Every year, Fast Company reporters and editors survey thousands of enterprises around the world to identify the most noteworthy innovations. Ranging from industry stalwarts to rising upstarts, the honorees of this highly esteemed list exemplify the best of the business world’s innovations. Among the ones recognized this year is our Urban Intelligence Platform.
Our selection to the Social Good category of the list is closely aligned with our values as a company. What began as a vision to provide data and analysis tools to urban practitioners has evolved into a more ambitious mission of providing decision makers with the information they need to drive effective and equitable decisions in the face of accelerating climate change, deepening social inequities, and the disparate impacts of the COVID-19 crisis. We deliver on that mission using the software innovation we’ve developed and brought to market: the world’s first and only Urban Intelligence Platform.
Today, we’re proud to serve our innovative platform to a broad range of public and private sector organizations tackling some of the most important challenges of the day. Planners looking to build better communities. Energy providers seeking to minimize risk to grid assets and impacts on surrounding communities. Investors wanting to improve returns while supporting a sustainable economy. And all levels of government struggling to distribute limited food, housing, and economic resources to those who need it most. Our platform serves clear answers to these current challenges—and future ones, we envision, as we advance our technology.
We’re honored to have been selected among the year’s most innovative companies, and look forward to driving more innovation so that we can further empower those who build our world to design a more efficient, equitable, and resilient future.
