Our Under-35 Innovation Competition for 2022 is now open for nominations. You can now nominate great candidates until 10pm EST on January 24, 2022.
We are publishing a list of young inventors Now for more than two decades. This list always includes interesting stories from young people who work to employ technology to make the world a better place, but beyond that it is a way for us to showcase technologies that will probably play a big role in all our lives in the years to come.
You’ve probably heard of many of our chosen ones over the years: Andrew Ng, Helen Greiner, Feng Zhang, Neha Narkhede, Ian Goodfellow, Stephanie Lampkin, Julie Shah, Joy Buolamwini. Many of these eminent scientists, entrepreneurs, humanitarians and businessmen list the honors of being distinguished in their bios.
What makes us a great candidate for the 35 Inventors list? We are looking for people who are doing exciting work in all areas of technology — biotechnology, artificial intelligence, robotics, computing, energy, electronics, software, nanomaterials, and the Internet. Sometimes our winners are inventors. Other winners are entrepreneurs who are employing technology in a new or exciting way, and others are working to use technology to correct a social injustice or to make people’s lives easier in difficult situations.
We want to see a certain achievement. We want to be able to answer questions like this: What’s new here? What has this person achieved that has never been done before? How is this person working towards solving a big technology problem that could make a huge difference in people’s lives?
Yes, many of our candidates come from elite research universities or large corporations, but this is not a requirement. We want to feature inventors, startup founders, and social workers using technology in creative ways to make a difference in their communities.
