How we chose the brands

We鈥檝e assembled a short list of brands that are still relatively young, have proven successful, and, in their own way, are standing out.

Given a seemingly infinite number of names from which we could choose, we focused on creating a mix of brands that would be the most compelling to a US audience 鈥 even if they鈥檙e not yet available stateside.

How we organized them: Arenas

Categories are dead.

Today鈥檚 brands have infinite potential to expand and evolve. As a result, we鈥檝e moved away from organizing brands according to the narrow lens of category or industry.

Instead, we organize brands according to Arenas: the core human needs and desires they are equipped to deliver against. A brand can play in multiple Arenas at once. In the report, you鈥檒l find each Breakthrough Brand aligned with the one Arena that best captures, in our point of view, the human motivation behind it.
