The Future 50

Welcome to the inaugural Fortune Future 50, our new ranking of companies best positioned for breakout growth. Produced in partnership with BCG, the Future 50 is divided into two lists: the 25 Leaders (companies with a market value above $20 billion) and the 25 Challengers (those below $20 billion when the ranking was done).
Visualizing the Future 50

The Future 50 offers a new way of looking at companies to assess their “vitality” and project future growth. To rank the companies, each was given a score based on its market potential and its own capacity in four areas: strategy, people, technology and investment, and corporate structure. Use our interactive tool to adjust the category weightings and create your own custom ranking.
