The 2018 thirty-five Innovators Under 35 China have been selected by a committee of judges from over 600 candidates.  They expertly evaluated each project in order to find the most talented people who are developing innovative technological solutions for the problems of modern society.

What the 35 have in common is that they are developing new projects that will change all areas of society, and they are disrupting our current and future way of living and making the world a better one. The thirty-five innovators are selected from five different categories: entrepreneurs, humanitarian, pioneers, visionaries, and inventors.

Recognition by MIT Technology Review gives these young people a platform to present themselves and their achievements to industry leaders, academic experts, and the global public.
