“It is an honor to be recognized by such a world-class, innovative publication,” said Bob Nunn, CEO of Everactive. “Fast Company continues to share stories of the companies changing the way the world does business; we’re excited to be a 2022 Established Excellence Finalist and to continue to expand Everactive’s self-powered IoT platform to help bring game-changing products to market.”

Everactive’s proprietary ultra-low-power technology is the transformational foundation for completely batteryless and wireless IoT solutions.

Now in its sixth year, the World Changing Ideas Awards showcase 39 winners, 350 finalists, and more than 600 honorable mentions—with climate, social justice, and AI and data among the most popular categories. A panel of eminent Fast Company staff members selected winners and finalists from a global pool of over 2,500 entries across transportation, education, food, politics, technology, health, social justice, and more.

Fast Company relishes its role in amplifying important, innovative work to address big challenges,” says David Lidsky, interim editor-in-chief of Fast Company. “Our journalists have identified some of the most ingenious initiatives to launch since the start of 2021, which we hope will both have a meaningful impact and lead others to join in being part of the solution.”
