Technology Review Reveals the 2008 TR35 List of the Year’s Top Young Innovators

Cambridge, MA | Posted on August 19th, 2008

Technology Review also announced the selection of Aimée Rose of ICx Technologies as the Humanitarian of the Year and JB Straubel of Tesla Motors as Innovator of the Year (see related press release). The 2008 TR35 includes individuals from such well-known organizations and institutions as A123 Systems, Caltech, Cisco Systems, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Microsoft, Stanford University, and Twitter.

"Discovering the amazing young men and women who make up the TR35 is one of the highlights of the year for us," said Jason Pontin, editor in chief and publisher of Technology Review. "The innovators on our 2008 list have made truly remarkable and valuable contributions."

The 2008 TR35 were selected from more than 300 submissions by the editors of Technology Review in collaboration with a prestigious panel of judges from leading organizations such as BP, Digg, Del.icio.us, IBM Watson Research Center, MIT, Princeton University, Texas A&M, Xerox, and Yale University. TR35 winners will be profiled in the September/October issue of Technology Review and online at www.technologyreview.com/tr35/. In addition, the EmTech08 Conference, to be held September 23-25 at MIT, will honor the winners in a series of "Meet the TR35" presentations, dedicated breakout sessions, and receptions.
