Saildrone is proud to be named to TIME's list of the 100 Most Influential Companies for 2024. The annual list includes leaders, disrupters, innovators, and titans making an impact across a range of business and humanitarian sectors. 

“This list highlights those working to find solutions to some of the world’s toughest challenges. We are honored to be recognized for our work to make ocean data collection more accessible, supporting a range of activities from maritime security to scientific research,” said Saildrone CEO Richard Jenkins.

The news follows Saildrone’s launch of its first production Surveyor, a purpose-built 65-foot platform for purpose-built for autonomous deep-water ocean mapping missions and maritime defense and security missions, and the announcement of Saildrone’s first Carbon Impact Report, which shows that the use of Saildrone USVs for maritime data collection avoids 99% of the carbon emissions that would have been generated by comparable vessels.

To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations across sectors and polled its global network of contributors and correspondents, as well as outside experts. Then, TIME editors evaluated each on key factors, including impact, innovation, ambition, and success. “No single data point or financial metric makes a TIME100 Company. Instead, we are looking at a mosaic of qualities, studying impact, innovation, ambition, and success, all in the many different forms that take shape today,” the magazine wrote.

The result is a diverse group of 100 businesses—including Anthropic, Nvidia, Athletic Brewing, Misral AI, and Palantir—helping to chart an essential path forward for humanity.
