The German engineering and technology company Bosch also invested in AnyVision in 2018. Its 9 percent stake in the company includes a sales and technology partnership.

Lyon, who was not involved in the ranking, says he was surprised Swedish fast fashion giant H&M made the list at No. 27. “H&M sourced from the Rana Plaza factory that collapsed in 2013, killing 1,100 workers.
