Charitable foundation Nominet Trust announced the top 100 technology companies that are using technology to address the complex social issues of poverty, education, and health.

“Digital technology has already transformed how we communicate, how we work, how we buy and sell. But we are only just beginning to scratch the surface of ways technology can be used to transform how we address complex social challenges, from health and education to poverty and climate change”, writes on the about page of the website.

Companies included in the short list include peer-to-peer digital currency Bitcoin, mobile money transfer system M-Pesa, and medical crowdfunding platform Watsi. Other prominent companies that made it onto the list include controversial news site Wikileaks, Raspberry Pi, and Github. Congratulations to all of the companies that made it onto the list.
