The World's Most Promising Tech Startups

The World's Most Promising Tech Startups

Every year, the Geneva-based World Economic Forum honors as "Tech Pioneers" anywhere from 30 to 50 companies offering new technologies or business models that could advance the global economy and have a positive impact on people's lives. More than half of this year's 34 honorees hail from outside the U.S. Twelve come from Europe, three from Asia, two from Africa, and one from South America. The companies were chosen by an independent panel of venture capitalists and industry experts. (BusinessWeek correspondent Jennifer L. Schenker served on the jury.)
