BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS—March 2, 2023— Hometap, which provides a smart, new loan alternative for tapping into home equity without taking on debt, has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2023.
This year’s list highlights the businesses at the forefront of their respective industries, paving the way for the innovations of tomorrow. These companies are setting the standard with some of the greatest accomplishments of the modern world. In addition to the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies, 540 organizations are recognized across 54 sectors and regions.
“Hometap was founded to innovate by providing homeowners with a smarter way to access their home equity, so this recognition is especially important to us,” said Jeffrey Glass, CEO of Hometap. “Our team will continue to create solutions and think of different and better ways to make homeownership less stressful and more accessible.”
Hometap maintained triple-digit revenue, contribution margin, and investment deployment growth for a fourth consecutive year in 2022. In 2022, Hometap continued its rapid growth and expansion, deploying hundreds of millions of dollars in capital to help homeowners, doubling its employee headcount, and launching in three new states, bringing its total state count to 18.
Fast Company’s editors and writers sought out the companies making the biggest strides around the globe. They also judged nominations received through their application process.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides a firsthand look at the inspiring and innovative efforts of companies across all sectors of the economy.
“What a strange and thrilling year it has been to honor this year’s Most Innovative Companies. This year’s list compiles some of the most cutting-edge groundbreakers who are changing our world every single day, from legacy organizations like McDonald’s to upstarts like MrBeast and institutions such as NASA. Everyone on this list does something completely, uniquely different,
yet, they all have one thing in common: innovation,” said Fast Company editor-in-chief Brendan Vaughan.
