However, as Robischon mentions in the video, innovation today isn’t just being left to the startups…the big companies like Nike and Google are definitely feeling the need to innovate — whether by acquiring startups or internal R&D shops.  Fast Company does a great job breaking down the list, by industry.  After all, not all industries innovate at the same rate.

Overall, here are the top five:

1. Google  2.  Bloomberg Philanthropies  3. Xiaomi  4.  Dropbox   5.  Netflix
