Center stage with the Innovators Under 35 (11:05 a.m. - 1:25 p.m.)

There has never been a greater need for tech innovators and visionaries to take the lead in shaping a better tomorrow – on a global scale.

11:05 a.m.

The early steps are critical, whether you are conducting research, defending a thesis, launching a start-up, or innovating from the inside of an organization. Hear from our Innovators who have followed their passion and turned their innovation into a reality with a voice that builds broader buy-in and generates momentum.

11:25 a.m.

Strength lies in differences, not similarities. Interdisciplinary collaboration with a diversity of voices and perspectives creates a feedback loop that results in new and creative ways to develop broad and encompassing solutions with real-world impact. When everyone is included, everyone wins.

11:40 a.m.

Whether you are blazing the trail as a start-up or innovating from within a global company, commercializing your idea can feel daunting. Our Innovators share their research-to-market journeys, including balancing commercial success with the ability to have the greatest impact in a chosen field.

12:00 p.m.

All innovators want to have the biggest impact possible – but the pressure to monetize has never been greater. Balancing new business models and the desire to keep pushing your research further have left innovators asking themselves tough questions. Our Innovators share how they made the decision to commercialize or not.

12:20 p.m.

Big ideas can solve big problems, but scaling discoveries can feel like an insurmountable task. Our Innovators share their real-world success stories around the complex task of scaling your idea.

12:45 p.m.

Innovation takes flight when fueled by different skills, knowledge, thinking patterns, and backgrounds. Learn the surprising connections helping these Innovators to reach their destination faster, more equitably, and with even greater success.

1:05 p.m.

This year’s honorees are in good company. Since 1999, MIT Technology Review’s Innovator Under 35 awards have celebrated some of the biggest names in technology – before they were big names. What can this award do for you?

Ask the Innovator meetups (1:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.)

Our Innovators lead candid discussions about their experiences and address your questions in real-time. Join us for one of three concurrent interactive sessions.
