MIT Technology Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35 competition for 2024 is now open for nominations

The 2024 35 Innovators Under 35 competition is in full swing, seeking out the trailblazers who are shaping the future of technology. This prestigious annual competition is our way of shining a spotlight on the brightest minds and innovators under the age of 35, pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of tech.

What We’re Looking For: Are you or someone you know making waves in technology? We want to hear about it! Our quest spans across various tech domains, from biotechnology, artificial intelligence, and climate and energy to computing, robotics, nanomaterials, and beyond. We are on the lookout for individuals who bring fresh perspectives and groundbreaking ideas to the table.

How to Nominate: Nominations are open now until 10 p.m. US Eastern time on Monday, January 22, 2024.

Who Makes a Great Candidate? Our past winners, including luminaries like Andrew Ng, Feng Zhang, Joy Buolamwini, Sharon Li, and Julia Joung, have set the bar high. While some are inventors, others are ingenious entrepreneurs or social activists using technology for positive change. Elite research universities or big corporations are common starting points, but it’s not a prerequisite. We celebrate diversity in backgrounds and ideas, showcasing those who make a significant impact, irrespective of their starting point.

Criteria for Selection: We’re on the lookout for specific achievements – innovations that stand out, unique contributions to technology, and a commitment to solving significant problems. We ask: What’s the innovation here? How does it change the game? How is the nominee addressing major technology challenges to improve lives?

Why Apply or Nominate? Being selected as one of our 35 Innovators Under 35 is a mark of distinction that many renowned figures proudly showcase on their bios. This is an opportunity to gain recognition for your outstanding work and contribute to the legacy of past honorees who have left an indelible mark on the world of technology.
