How will my company be recognized by TIME?

At minimum, if we select your company to appear on the list, it will receive a short write-up outlining what it does and why it’s influential. The companies chosen for the list will then become part of the exclusive TIME100 Companies community—a networking group that TIME business and tech editors return to throughout the year for coverage, expertise, and events. Select companies and their leaders may also appear on the cover of TIME.

Additionally, CEOs of selected TIME100 Most Influential Companies are eligible to contribute op-eds and essays for TIME100 Voices, our exclusive platform highlighting the ideas and perspectives of extraordinary leaders.

How could my company be publicized in connection with the list?

TIME cannot make guarantees about external promotion. However, last year, TIME’s Most Influential Companies list received extensive global media coverage.

You and/or your company will also have the option to license TIME100 Most Influential Companies content and seal for use in your own marketing and promotional materials.

What's the application deadline?

All applications must be received on or before March 22, 2024 at 11:59 p.m PT.
