About Innovators Under 35

Since 1999, MIT Technology Review has honored the young innovators whose inventions and research we find most exciting.

They must be citizens of (or work/study in) one of the following countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Taiwan, Australia and New Zealand.
