Innovators Under 35 was established in 1999. In addition to the global competition, regional editions are held in Asia Pacific, China, Europe, India, Latin America, MENA, Korea and Japan.
MIT Technology Review launched Innovators Under 35 Japan in 2020 as the seventh regional edition in the world. Our mission is to discover and share with the world the talented individuals who are actively using technology to solve the societal problems facing Japan, such as the declining birthrate and aging population, labor shortage, and the aging social infrastructure.
As we enter our second year in 2022, we are searching for young innovators in computers, electronics, software, the Internet, artificial intelligence, robotics, transportation, communications, sustainable energy, and the newly-added biotechnology/medicine technical fields.
Out of more than 350 candidates, including entrepreneurs, researchers, and social activists, TR Japan's editors and 16 other experts selected 15 innovators. We hope you will take note of the activities of these young innovators who continue to take on challenges in Japan.
