Samsung takes second position in Most Innovative Companies list of 2013, replaces Google
Samsung has been named the second most innovative company in Boston Consulting Group’s list of the most innovative companies for 2013, beating Google, which was at the second spot for the last seven years, and settling cosily just below Apple, which holds first place for the ninth year in a row. Samsung has risen from number 28 in 2008 to number 2 in 2013, making it quite an impressive growth for the Korean manufacturer.
“This reputation has become global in recent years as the company has moved from innovative success to success,” said the consultancy’s report. “Samsung has vaulted up the ranking in our survey from number 28 in 2008 to second place this year.” Things haven’t been so great for Samsung’s home rival LG, however, as the latter still sits at the 25th position, and it doesn’t look it will be catching up anytime soon.
