Inc. 500/5000 tells us who’s growing the fastest. This list, the Best for the World list, tells us who’s the best. Best for workers, best for communities, best for the environment.

Fast growth is one measure of a business’s success, but it is no longer enough. The world needs businesses that are both high growth and high impact. The world needs businesses that make “yes/and” the norm, and leave the old thinking of “either/or” behind. The world needs social unicorns who, instead of aiming to hit $1 billion, reach to touch one billion lives.
