MENLO PARK, Calf., March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- LeoLabs has been named to Fast Company's prestigious annual list of the World's Most Innovative Companies for 2021.

The list honors businesses that have not only found a way to be resilient in the past year, but also turned those challenges into impact-making processes.

"LeoLabs is delighted to be recognized by Fast Company for revolutionizing space traffic safety and sustainability," said Dan Ceperley, CEO and Co-Founder of LeoLabs.
