Three Vancouver companies have been recognized by Fast Company magazine with a 2021 Fast Company World Changing Idea Award.
The Fast Company World Changing Ideas Awards honor the businesses, policies, projects, and concepts that are actively engaged and deeply committed to pursuing innovation when it comes to solving health and climate crises, social injustice, or economic inequality.
Fast Company recognized CubicFarm’s two main technologies, the CubicFarm System for growing fresh produce and the HydroGreen Grow System for growing fresh livestock feed consistently and profitably in any climate, 365 days a year.
“We’re delighted to be recognized in Fast Company’s World Changing Ideas Awards,” says Dave Dinesen, CEO of CubicFarms. “We need to continue investing in technologies that use automation to maximize efficiencies while using our existing natural resources more responsibly, sustainably, and affordably. Using our indoor commercial scale growing technologies helps localize delicious fresh produce and nutritious fresh livestock feed, which benefits animals, people, and our environment.”
Damon was recognized in the Transportation category for its flagship Hypersport superbike, the world’s smartest, safest, most powerful, fully connected electric motorcycle.
“Damon continues to push the boundaries and exceed the limits of what is possible on two wheels,” said Jay Giraud, founder & CEO, Damon Motors. “We set out to make a global impact by making motorcycles safer and cleaner than ever before. To receive this recognition from Fast Company with a World Changing Idea Award is validation of our ongoing efforts to redefine modern motorcycling.”
PrecisionOS was recognized in the Best World Changing Idea in North America category.
Honorees were selected by a team of Fast Company editors and writers looking for the products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for the good of society and the planet.
