Top 10 most Innovative Countries

After my recent Asia trips, I’m not as surprised at the results of the study, "Top 10 most Innovative Countries" by Boston Consulting Group and the National Association of Manufacturers.

I am a little surprised at the countries that beat out the U.S. though -- we barely make it into the top 10 by coming in at #8. The study ranked 110 countries based on factors such as tax policies, education systems, infrastructure, and number of patents issued.

The complete Top 10 list is as follows:

1. Singapore
2. South Korea
3. Switzerland
4. Iceland
5. Ireland
6. Hong Kong
7. Finland
8. U.S.
9. Japan
10. Sweden
