Profit-Driven Problem Solvers – The Fast 50 Awards

Fast Company LogoBOP businesses and entrepreneurs, take note: Fast Company wants you. The magazine’s sixth annual Fast 50 Awards will spotlight businesses that are helping to save the world–a can?t-miss opportunity for worthy base of the pyramid initiatives to make waves in the mainstream media. From the call for nominations:

We believe that business–capitalist business–is a profound force for positive change. Help us prove it.

Unlike many other awards and contests, the Fast 50 uses a relatively straightforward nomination form that emphasizes brevity and clarity over lengthy detail–surely the result of having top-notch reporters and researchers on staff. The Fast 50 Awards will accept nominations until December 1. Readers may nominate all businesses or initiatives regardless of whether or not they have a stake in the project.
