The MIT Technology Review's Innovators Under 35 competition arrived in France thanks to the support of BNP Paribas and L'Atelier BNP Paribas. Our objective has always been to recognize the most remarkable technological entrepreneurs and researchers in the country. We have grown exponentially since we first entered the French community in 2012, always pursuing the same objective: to award the innovative and ingenious developments of new technologies or the creative application of pre-existing ones that address the world’s most pressing challenges.
This year, as the European project continued to grow, the MIT Technology Review innovation community went one step further: we compiled a pool of the top 35 profiles in Europe which became Innovators Under 35 Europe for 2017 during the award ceremony on September 14th in Paris.
Prior to this ceremony, MIT Technology Review selected a list of the Top French Talents – the best 10 candidates from France who could have the chance to be elected as Innovators Under 35 Europe 2017 in September. The ceremony to showcase these Top French Talents took place on June 8th at L'Atelier BNP Paribas and gathered laureates from the previous editions and experts from the tech ecosystem in France.
