Jack and Laura Dangermond, co-founders of Esri in Redlands, have been named one of the top 100 business visionaries in the United States by The Business Insider.
The online magazine, which reports primarily on business and technology, included the Dangermonds in its inaugural edition of “The Business Insider 100: The Creators,” according a statement released Thursday.
The list, which includes officials from Apple, General Motors, Ikea and Uber, recognizes companies that create value for the world and make the planet a better and safer place to live.
Esri develops software that is used in a variety of circumstances, from evaluating the damage caused by a national disaster to determining the best place to start a business.
The Dangermonds allow some charitable foundations to use their software for free. They are also philanthropists and have done much work on behalf of the environment and conservation, according to the statement.
