NOTES TO EDITORS
Since 1999, MIT Technology Review has identified the top young innovators under the age of 35 who receive the TR35 Award (change to 2014 link) at EmTech. TR35 nominees are recognized annually for their contribution in transforming the nature of technology in industries such as biotechnology, energy, medicine, computing, transportation and the web. Past global TR35 winners include Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, Google’s Sergey Brin and Larry Page, Tumblr’s David Karp and Spotify’s Daniel Ek among others.
The TR35 project takes months of effort. It begins with nominations from the public and MIT Technology Review editors. People who have been selected by MIT Technology Review’s publishing partners as localInnovators Under 35 in several regions worldwide are also considered. The editors go through the hundreds of candidates and select fewer than 100 finalists, all of whom will be younger than 35 on October 1. A panel of judges rates the finalists on the originality and impact of their work. Finally, the editors take the judges’ scores into account to select the group.
