The company was named in the “On The Rise” category as part of the seventh annual awards that honor creative solutions to some of the biggest issues facing us today.
Austin, TX, May 2, 2023 — The winners of Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards were announced today, honoring sustainable designs, innovative products, bold social initiatives, and other creative projects that are changing the way we work, live, and interact with the world.
Cart.com was recognized by Fast Company for the launch of its Channels and Unified Analytics products in 2022. Channels is a feed marketing and marketplace management solution that simplifies how brands show up and manage products across more than 2,000 channels where their customers shop. Unified Analytics connects data from across the shopper journey to identify trends and deliver automated, actionable insights to improve business performance. The two offerings enable merchants to deliver measurable improvements across sales, margins, Return-on-Ad-Spend, and inventory expense.
This year’s World Changing Ideas Awards showcase 45 winners, 216 finalists, and more than 300 honorable mentions—with health, climate, energy, and AI among the most popular categories. A panel of Fast Company editors and reporters selected winners and finalists from a pool of more than 2,200 entries across urban design, education, nature, politics, technology, corporate social responsibility, and more. Several new categories were added this year including rapid response, crypto and blockchain, agriculture, and workplace. The 2023 awards feature entries from across the globe, from Italy to Singapore to New Zealand.
Fast Company’s Spring 2023 issue (on newsstands May 9, 2023) will showcase some of the world’s most inventive entrepreneurs and forward-thinking companies that are actively tackling global challenges. The solutions cover everything from water reuse in urban environments and modular housing to an initiative combating book bans and a program that spotlights trans-friendly salons around the world.
Cart.com was founded in late 2020 to equip ecommerce brands of any size with the same enterprise-grade software, services, and logistics of the digital giants that dominate the multi-trillion dollar industry. Today, the company is among the fastest growing ecommerce leaders with nearly 6,000 brands on its platform.
“It’s thrilling to see the creativity and innovation that are so abundant among this year’s honorees,” says Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan. “While it’s easy to feel discouraged by the state of the world, the entrepreneurs, companies, and nonprofits featured in this package show the limitless potential to address society’s most urgent problems. Our journalists have highlighted some of the most exciting and impactful work being done today—from housing to equity to sustainability—and we look forward to seeing not only how these projects evolve but how they inspire others to develop solutions of their own.”
