Innovators Under 35 is the most prestigious recognition worldwide from MIT Technology Review

Since 2012, MIT Technology Review has been performing a talent search in several Latin American countries for the most talented young innovators and entrepreneurs who are developing new technologies to address the most pressing issues faced by society. To that end, the magazine, property of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), has celebrated local editions of its most prestigious competition in Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Central America, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay, always pursuing the same objective: to award innovation

Beginning last year, the competition has gone one step further by aiming to compile a pool of 35 profiles from all around the Latin American continent. The call for nominations for this year's edition is now open until March 12.
