Innovators Under 35 LATAM 2023
About the challenge
A new Latin American edition of the Innovators Under 35 Awards kicks off!
The Innovators Under 35 LATAM 2023 Awards, in its ninth edition, represent an opportunity to meet those young people who are shaping our future and transforming lives through their technological and scientific breakthroughs.
We are looking for people, under the age of 35, whose excellent technical work promises to have an impact on the world in the coming decades. Our goal is to detect new emerging technologies or the creative application of technology and/or science to solve problems facing humanity.
Created in 1999 in honor of MIT Technology Review's centennial, the Innovators Under 35 list now has several regional versions. The awards will bring together young Latin American visionaries pursuing the same goal: innovation, ingenuity and breakthroughs to address the world's most pressing challenges.
Each year, brilliant men and women are recognized for their advances in diverse areas of innovation such as biotechnology and medicine; artificial intelligence and robotics; software; energy and sustainability; internet and web; electronics and hardware; transportation; nanotechnology and materials; and telecommunications.
The candidates' work is evaluated by our high-level International Committee of judges, who select the list of 35 winners, which will be published by MIT Technology Review (both in its English and Spanish editions). We seek to recognize the brightest minds in Latin America in the following competition profiles:
- Entrepreneurs: see technologies as an opportunity to turn innovations into disruptive businesses.
- Inventors: create technologies that allow them to reimagine how things are done.
- Humanitarians: use technology to solve problems caused by poverty, war or disability.
- Visionaries: see things differently from others and find powerful new uses for technology.
- Pioneers: expand scientific knowledge and pave the way for future technologies.
Join us on October 26, 2023, in Lima, Peru, where we will present the projects of the Innovators Under 35 LATAM 2023 cohort. The awards ceremony will serve to meet these young people, honor and celebrate their work.
We hope you will be able to join us in person or via streaming at this celebration ceremony and we look forward to seeing you there!
