Many of the companies chosen are in a start-up phase or in their first rounds of financing. Companies selected as Technology Pioneers must demonstrate visionary leadership, show the potential for being a long-standing market leader, and have proven technology. .

“We are honored that the World Economic Forum Selection Committee has chosen Neuronetics as a Technology Pioneer.
