Innovator of the Year 2018


The unbelievable Machine Company is one of the most innovative companies in Germany. This was the result of an extensive analysis by the business magazine brand eins Wissen in cooperation with the statistics portal Statista.

In the fall of last year, brand eins Wissen and Statista analyzed the innovative spirit of German companies on a large scale. To this end, 2,000 representatives of ”innovation award-winning companies”, 250 experts from the Berlin Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit) and an expert panel of 20,000 executives were interviewed. The surveys related to the categories “products and services”, “processes“, and “corporate culture”.

Unbelievable Machine receives the award as Innovator of the Year in the Technology and Telecommunications category for companies with up to 250 employees.

“We are pleased to be on this list of the best,” says *um Managing Director and Basefarm Board Member Ravin Mehta. “Especially because it's all about good work. It is said that the company's innovative strength must be visible and has to be perceived by customers, competitors, and multipliers. Obviously, we have succeeded in doing the same here.”

With this award, The unbelievable Machine Company continues its unparalleled success story of recent years. Only recently, Focus Business rated us as a top employer in the mid-sized sector, before Great Place to Work voted us the best employer in the ICT sector as well as the best employer in Berlin and Brandenburg. ISG/Experton named us Big Data Leader 2017 and Data Analytics Leader 2018.
