The September 8, 2014 issue of Forbes Magazine not only announces the world’s 100 most innovative companies, it also includes a full-page ad celebrating our 2014 BCA 10 honorees! (See p.115.) Forbes recognizes that the best businesses in America support the arts because they know that the arts are drivers of innovation.
