The Dow Jones Industrial Average, the S&P 500, the Nasdaq Composite, and the Nasblext Composite are all up in 2017, but the biggest winners of the year aren’t necessarily the big companies that make headlines.
These are the smaller, scrappier startups that aren’t so big.
And if you want to take a peek inside these companies, you should probably read about them.
Here’s a look at the 50 most innovative startups for 2019, in order.
We’re on a roll at the Fortune 100, and there’s no shortage of them to choose from.
So here’s a guide to how to read the 50 companies you should be watching for this year.
The Nest thermostat: Nest’s $1.3 billion investment in the thermostats business could be the best of the big-name deals of the decade.
Nest is a $19 billion company that, at its peak, was worth nearly $50 billion.
Now it’s worth just $1 billion.
Nest’s thermostatic thermostet is already the most widely used thermostatch on the market, and its new technology, the Nest Aware, will likely become the standard for thermostatis of the future.
BubbleCoin: The blockchain-based cryptocurrency has been one of the most important innovations of the past decade, helping to transform financial services.
It’s a decentralized digital ledger that is backed by a cryptocurrency.
Bitcoin has become the dominant payment system for large organizations, but BubbleCoin will likely replace Bitcoin for the rest of us, helping banks make better financial decisions.
Bitcoin cash: Bitcoin cash has been a wild ride since its release in late 2017, when it surpassed the value of gold.
It has soared nearly 200% over the past year and a half.

The S-Share index is down roughly 40%.
The S&p 500 index is up nearly 10% since early 2018, but still in negative territory.
