Fast Company - We Made the List! - Most Innovative Companies 2024

The entertainment industry’s most essential data provider joins the ranks of Nvidia, YouTube, Taco Bell, and more

Los Angeles, CA (March 19, 2024)Luminate, the global entertainment data and insights provider, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies of 2024.

This year’s list shines a spotlight on businesses that are shaping industry and culture through their innovations. These organizations are setting new standards and achieving remarkable milestones in all sectors of the economy. Alongside the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, Fast Company recognizes 606 organizations across 58 sectors and regions.

Speaking on the news, Luminate CEO Rob Jonas said, “Over the past twelve months, Luminate has achieved a myriad of wins as we continue to grow and evolve our capabilities as the most trusted data and insights provider for the entertainment industry. The Beta launch of our new platform in the spring unveiled an intuitive new user experience that provides customers with the ability to extract more in-depth, expert-level insights than ever before. It marked a new chapter in our mission of building a reliable, centralized data hub across music, film, television, SVOD and more. That launch was followed by the introduction of key new offerings, including the Streaming Viewership (M) product, which measures minutes watched of original streaming TV series and films and our global music streaming data, inclusive of music engagement metrics from 50 different countries. Most recently, we acquired Quansic, a disruptive provider of music metadata solutions to improve our capabilities in this area. I am grateful to Fast Company for recognizing the exceptional work of the entire Luminate team.”

Luminate exists at the intersection of technology, media and culture, and serves as the entertainment industry’s most trusted data partner. The company provides authoritative global data and insights across music, film and TV, managing more than 20 trillion data points that come verified from over 500 data partners. In addition to compiling the iconic Billboard Charts each week and confronting problems of data asymmetry in the film & TV SVOD industry, the company maintains an expansive set of diversity, equity, inclusion and sustainability metadata for Hollywood and provides audience research insights internationally. 

The World’s Most Innovative Companies stands as Fast Company‘s hallmark franchise and one of its most anticipated editorial efforts of the year.

Fast Company‘s editors and writers identified the companies driving progress around the world and across industries, evaluating thousands of submissions through a competitive application process. The result is a globe-spanning guide to innovation today, from early-stage startups to some of the most valuable companies in the world. Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies package is available online, as well as in-app form via iTunes, and on newsstands beginning March 26. The hashtag is #FCMostInnovative.

“Our list of the Most Innovative Companies is both a comprehensive look at the innovation economy and a snapshot of the business trends that defined the year,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “We saw extraordinary innovation across the board in 2023, but we also saw a handful of clear patterns: the growing footprint and impact of AI, the triumphant return of live events, and great leaps forward in climate tech. We face daunting challenges on many fronts, but the solutions we celebrate in MIC give me plenty of hope about the future.”

Fast Company will host the Most Innovative Companies Summit and Gala on May 16. The summit features a morning and afternoon of inspiring content, followed by a creative black-tie gala including networking, a seated dinner, and an honoree presentation. This event celebrates the Most Innovative Companies honorees and provides an inside look at cutting-edge business trends and what it takes to innovate in 2024.
