Skillz Named to Fast Company’s 2019 Most Innovative Companies List

Today Fast Company announced its Most Innovative Companies of 2019, and we are thrilled to be one of the top gaming companies on the list! Since 2008, Fast Company has been the definitive source for recognizing the organizations that are transforming industries and shaping modern society.

Winners are chosen by Fast Company editors, reporters, and contributors, who survey thousands of companies across 36 categories. The goal is to identify the most significant innovations of the year and measure their impact on businesses, industries, and culture. Last year’s winners included notable names, such as Apple, Netflix, Square, Amazon, and Patagonia. Winners range from some of the largest companies in the world to small startups with just a few employees disrupting the status quo.

Included amongst this year’s winners are companies such as the NBA, The Walt Disney Company, as well as the increasingly popular e-commerce fashion service Stitch Fix. Other notable honorees include Apple, Sony, and Target, along with gaming companies like Twitch, Nintendo, and Activision Blizzard. Skillz is one of the most innovative gaming companies on the 2019 list.
