PAWTUCKET, R.I.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Hasbro, Inc.’s Wizards of the Coast (NASDAQ: HAS) 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.
“We’re honored to be named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies and to rank among the top 5 in our industry this year,” said Cynthia Williams, President of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro Digital Gaming. “As we look toward the future, we believe that continued innovation is central to sparking player’s passion and inspiring their creativity.
