Our 35 Innovators Under 35 competition for 2022 is now open to nominations. You can nominate great candidates now through January 24, 2022 at 10 p.m. EST.
We have been publishing a list of young innovators for more than two decades. The list always has fascinating stories of young people working to use technology to make the world a better place, but beyond that, it’s a way for us to showcase the technologies that are likely to be big in the years to come Will play a role in our lives.
You’ve probably heard of many of the people we’ve chosen over the years – Andrew Ng, Helen Greiner, Feng Zhang, Neha Narkhede, Ian Goodfellow, Stephanie Lampkin, Julie Shah, Joy Buolamwini. Many of these respected scientists, entrepreneurs, humanists, and business people cite the honor of being prominently selected in their biography.
Now you can be part of our 2022 list by nominating someone (or even yourself) here. And for all the details and requirements, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
What makes a good candidate for our 35 list of innovators? We are looking for people with interesting tasks in all areas of technology – biotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, computers, energy, electronics, software, nanomaterials and the Internet. Sometimes our winners are inventors. Other winners are entrepreneurs who use technology in new or interesting ways, and others work to use technology to correct social injustices or to make life easier for people in difficult situations.
We want to see a certain achievement. We are happy to answer questions like: What is the innovation here? What has this person never achieved in this way? How is this person working on solving a big technology problem that could make a big difference in people’s lives?
Yes, many of our candidates come from elite research universities or large corporations, but that’s not a requirement. We’d also like to introduce inventors, startup founders, and social activists who are creatively using technology to make a difference in their communities.
