Fast Company is excited to announce the addition of 170 new members to the Most Creative People in Business, an exclusive group of influencers in business from across the economy and around the globe.

These men and women have worked on fascinating projects at organizations as diverse as Google, Sweetgreen, Slack, Under Armour, BuzzFeed, the U.S. Digital Service, and Sesame Workshop. As scientists, managers, programmers, comedians, designers, musicians, writers, and activists, they are each working to solve global and societal problems in creative ways.

Darren was also featured in a video on Fast Company on the importance of nonprofits’ partnering with businesses, stating, “Rather than looking at corporations and the business community as the other, we need to understand how we leverage and harness the innovation in business for social good.”
