Who are the best French Tech Innovators Under 35 of the year?


Since 1999, MIT Technology Review recognizes the young talent across the world: innovators, researchers or pioneers that aim to change the future through their ideas and projects. This year, the ten new members coming from the 4th edition of Innovators Under 35 France will join the global community of more than 200 Innovators Under 35 that already received this award.

Sergey Brin (Google), Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook) or Jack Dorsey (Twitter) already received the award for their disruptive projects that completely changed the course of our daily lives. In a more national focus, great entrepreneurs and researchers also received the award: Rand Hindi (How will IA take over technology? — Snips), Xavier Duportet (Antibiotics are weapons of mass-destruction — EligoBioscience) and David Fattal (Bring holographic content on mobile devices — Leia Inc).

Next April 13th the award ceremony of the 4th edition of Innovators Under 35 France will take place in Paris to honour the 2016 generation of French young innovators. During this annual “rendez-vous”, the european community of Innovators Under 35 will gather in order to reveal, present and meet the 10 young talents of the year selected by this prestigious technology magazine.

Along with Kathleen Kennedy (President of MIT Technology Review and MIT Entreprise Forum), Muriel Pénicaud (CEO at Business France), Xavier Duportet (CEO at Eligo Bioscience) and Romain Lacombe (CEO at Plume), the selected innovators will have the opportunity to participate in coaching sessions in order to present their project in front of this high-level community during the ceremony. Additionally, Mathieu Nebra (Innovator Under 35 2015 & CEO at OpenClassrooms) will discuss & debate with François Taddei (Director at CRI) during a session regarding the Education of the Future:

How do we use technology to revolutionize the education system and improve the engagement of educators in a fast changing world, while limiting the amount of early exposure to technology?
