The World Economic Forum's New Champions community brings together forward-looking companies that are championing new business models, emerging technologies and sustainable growth strategies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

New business models are emerging across all sectors and increasingly require organizations to build ecosystems that transcend industry boundaries. Market disruptions and a rapidly evolving competitive landscape driven by new technologies raise existential questions on future strategies. Also, the imperative to tackle societal challenges requires new forms of business leadership, driven by new expectations from customers, talent and policymakers.

Join a global network of business leaders, understand dynamic forces of transformation and engage in World Economic Forum events.
