Fast Company Most Innovative Companies 2023
Purdue University has been named one of Fast Company’s top 20 Most Innovative Companies of 2023, the only university on the list. This is the first time Purdue has been included for this particular recognition. Purdue has been recognized in large part due to our innovative work in semiconductor development and chip-production workforce initiatives.
The 2023 Fast Company Most Innovative Companies recognition can be used as evergreen content on all of your channels for the months of March through May. The list was initially published on March 2, and the print version hits the stands on May 9. After those two time frames pass, we’d recommend sharing only on LinkedIn and Twitter platforms. We recommend social teams review analytics to decide if the content is resonating with your audiences after the initial few posts.
