Entrepreneurship, innovation and technology have always played a key role in shaping and improving society. This proves to be even more the case during times of crisis, similar to the one the world faced this past year during the biggest recession in almost a century. New companies are already planting the seeds for recovery and for the next wave of growth and progress. It is against this background that the World Economic Forum is pleased to present the 2010 class of Technology Pioneers, entrepreneurial companies at the edge of innovation and technology in their respective fields. We congratulate the 26 Technology Pioneers 2010 for their remarkable achievements and welcome them to the wider community of the World Economic Forum.
