Joel Beckerman has been selected by Fast Company, the world’s leading progressive business media brand, as one of the Most Creative People in Business 1000 (The MCP 1000).
Fast Company’s MCP 1000 is a new resource that defines the influential, diverse group of modern Renaissance men and women driving change across the economy and around the globe. Fast Company will bring the members of the world’s most creative community together to facilitate the spread of innovation and the sharing of expertise.
Here’s what Fast Company had to say about the #MCP1000 group:
With the Most Creative People 1000, we are bringing all of these highly accomplished, dynamic individuals together in one group, along with hand-selected subjects of Fast Company features. All were chosen by Fast Company’s editors, according to our proprietary methodology. These are the people behind the world-changing, inspiring and, yes, even whimsical, ideas that are moving business in new directions today.
Fast Company hosted events in New York City and San Francisco to bring as many #MCP1000 members together in on place as possible and to celebrate the group’s achievements. The New York City event was hosted by Diane von Furstenberg (DVF), Neil Blumenthal (Warby Parker), Beth Comstock (GE), Dennis Crowley (Foursquare), David Droga (Droga5), Chris Hughes (New Republic), David Karp (Tumblr), MichellePeluso (Guilt Group), and Rachel Sterne Haot (Chief Digital Officer, NY State).
At the New York City event, musician Taylor McFerrin created an original song using voices and audio clips he collected from the guests – we love to see Fast Company use sonic as an experience!
