EL SEGUNDO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 18, 2015) - Fuhu, Inc., the creator of the award-winning nabi® tablet -- the world's first Android tablet built for kids -- and the foremost innovator in technology for kids and their families, has been named to Fast Company's highly coveted Most Innovative Companies 2015 list, honoring the 50 most innovative companies in the world. The kids and family technology trailblazer placed #4 in the consumer electronics category and #24 overall -- ranking higher than several industry giants including GoPro, Microsoft, and Samsung. In addition, Fuhu is cited by Fast Company as being the biggest winner in the tablet arena and the fastest growing private company in the United States, with close to 160,000% growth in just three years. The list is published as part of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies issue, which hits newsstands this month and celebrates the most cutting edge and successful companies from around the globe.
Jim Mitchell, CEO of Fuhu, said, "The goal for all of us at Fuhu is to continuously break new ground and create new solutions and experiences that will vastly enhance and improve the lives of the digital family. We are delighted to be recognized by Fast Company for our efforts alongside other tech giants who have also helped to break new ground."
Fuhu was chosen as a 2015 honoree for "serving kids in ways the tablet giants don't," according to Fast Company. In addition to creating the nabi tablet -- the first Android tablet built for kid -- Fuhu has developed a comprehensive line of kids and family technology solutions that truly redefine the digital family. This is led by the upcoming nabi Square HD -- the first 4K action camera for kids -- and the category-defining nabi Big Tab. The nabi Big Tab line is currently available as 20" and 24" giant tablets and will expand later this year to displays ranging in size from 32" to 65". The line is designed to be the true centerpiece of the digital home while furthering Fuhu's mission to utilize technology to bring families together.
Fuhu also recently launched nabi Pass, a first of-its-kind subscription service created and curated specifically for kids ranging from 3-14, to provide a complete learning solution and a deep offering of entertaining, educational and good-for-the-brain mixed media content -- from movies, television shows and short-form videos, to apps, games and e-books. Additionally, for the first time ever with any subscription service, nabi Pass includes access to Fuhu's Wings Unlimited -- Fuhu's comprehensive and personalized, Common Core State Standards-aligned learning system for grades PreK to 6th, designed to develop confidence and passion for learning, as it builds skill set mastery of reading, writing and math.
Most Innovative Companies is one of Fast Company's most significant and highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. The magazine's editors spend months gathering and analyzing data on companies around the globe to identify and honor leading enterprises and rising newcomers that exemplify the best in business and innovation. The resulting package emphasizes the breadth of companies with progressive, nimble business models, an ethos of sustainability and a culture of creativity. Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies issue (March 2015) is now available online at http://www.fastcompany.com/section/most-innovative-companies-2015 and will be on newsstands beginning February 17.
Fuhu's appointment to Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies 2015 takes place on the heels of several prestigious accolades bestowed on the company over the past year. In early 2014, Inc.

Most recently, Fuhu was honored as the #1 Fastest Growing Company in North America in the Computer/Peripheral category on the Deloitte 2014 Technology 500™ list.
