Every year, Fast Company’s World-Changing Ideas Awards honor the innovative ways businesses and organizations are tackling the biggest challenges of our time. Amid the seemingly endless stream of disastrous news, these awards provide more than 1,000 reasons to feel some hope. One thousand fifty-three, to be exact. That’s the total number of honorees that Fast Company’s judges chose to recognize from the nearly 3,000 applications received.

This year’s honorees are a reminder that every single day, countless indefatigable problem solvers are addressing the world’s most urgent challenges. Every one of this year’s honorees represents an idea that can help change the world for the better.

One of AC Ventures’ portfolio companies, ALAMI, is included in the Honorable Mention list from Fast Company 2022 World-Changing Ideas Award – Asia Pacific.

“ALAMI is built to provide more services beyond the usual scope of an alternative investment platform. We strive to be a sharia-driven, socially responsible, and impactful financial platform contributing to meaningful change and growth towards a more equitable society. We will continue to work harder towards this vision,” said Dima Djani, Founder & CEO of ALAMI.
