Tulip Named to Fast Company’s Third Annual List of the Next Big Things in Tech

Tulip earns a spot on Fast Company’s list that recognizes tech breakthroughs across industries that promise to transform the future.

NOVEMBER 28, 2023, SOMERVILLE, MA — Tulip Interfaces, a leader in frontline operations, announced today that it has been named to Fast Company’s third annual Next Big Things in Tech list, honoring technology breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of industries — from healthcare and security to artificial intelligence and data.

This year, 119 technologies developed by established companies, startups, or research teams are highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses, and society overall. While not all of the technological developments are available in the market yet, each one is reaching key milestones in order to have a proven impact in the next five years.

In our opinion, the inclusion of Tulip Vision is a testament to our breakthrough platform that democratizes access to computer vision and edge computing for the manufacturing industry. Tulip Vision is a game-changer because it can be set up quickly and easily using affordable, off-the-shelf cameras and hardware — empowering manufacturers to implement computer vision technology in dynamic factory environments.

The platform is also flexible enough to be customized to any production process — and can be used across a variety of different use cases, from counting and defect detection to batch verification and in-line quality testing.

“We’re thrilled that Tulip has been named one of Fast Company’s Next Big Things in Tech as we wholeheartedly believe Tulip Vision can enable a new way of working for frontline operations,” said Natan Linder, CEO and Co-Founder of Tulip. “We’re in good company on this list — and we look forward to seeing what all of the recognized organizations will do next.”

“The Next Big Things in Tech is not just a look around the corner — it's a look around the corner after that,” said Brendan Vaughan, Editor-in-Chief of Fast Company. “These are the products and ideas that will define technological innovation for the rest of this decade and beyond — and solve some of the world's most pressing issues. We are thrilled to honor the organizations that are making them a reality.”
