If you were to draw up a list of the most interesting companies in the world, what would it look like? What exactly makes a company interesting to other people? Perhaps it’s the products they make or are working on which makes them interesting, whether that’s due to innovation, style, or simply the quality of their work.
Perhaps it’s the people who lead them, some of whom have become celebrities in their own right with the rise of social media and the direct access that gives to the thoughts and dreams of these business leaders. Or perhaps it’s the culture surrounding these companies, both in terms of their employees and their customers, a certain something that just makes the company compelling to insiders and outsiders both.
In this article, we’re going to look at 10 companies that we believe check many of these points, making them the most interesting companies in the world. Those companies are Alphabet Inc (NASDAQ:GOOGL), Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA)/SpaceX, Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN), Illumina, Inc. (NASDAQ:ILMN), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB), Monsanto Company (NYSE:MON), Alcor, Editas Medicine Inc (NASDAQ:EDIT), and AeroMobil.
While we did not use any specific methodology to come to these rankings, we did factor in a slew of variables. While many of these companies are tech companies, we did consider companies across every industry. However, it’s undeniable that the tech industry is loaded with compelling companies that have their hands in so many cookie jars, it can be hard to keep up with everything they’re doing. However, that in itself is certainly a part of what makes them so interesting, as opposed to a company that has a narrow focus that would only be noteworthy to people with that same interest. However, we did add a few non-tech companies that we think are doing some amazing things that could change the world.
This list is partly inspired by the most interesting man in the world, the Dos Equis pitchman that has become a legend of marketing. If you’d like to find out more about the real man behind the character, Jonathan Goldsmith, who was recently removed from the role after a wildly successful 10-year run, be sure to check out this list of the 21 Most Interesting Man in the World Facts.

Now then, let’s proceed with our list of the 10 most interesting companies in the world, which we’ll kick off on the next page.
