Eden partners with EmTech to identify the region’s top innovators

November 19, 2014 – EmTech is the annual global Emerging Technologies conference hosted by MIT Technology Review, the oldest and arguably most respected technology publication. This event has grown into a global community which runs in the US, Spain, China, India, Mexico, Colombia and Singapore, and is widely considered as one of the most important conferences on emerging technologies that matter.

This year, EmTech Singapore will be taking place from 27 to 28 January 2015, and will feature world-class speakers from organizations such as Atlassian, Baidu, Intel Capital, Intellectual Ventures, MIT, and Virgin Galactic.

EmTech is collaborating with Eden Strategy Institute to identify 10 of the most outstanding and aspiring innovators under the age of 35 in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand, whose superb technical work promises to change the world. The prestigious Innovators Under 35 competition has previously honored some of the world’s most brilliant minds such as Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg, JB Straubel of Tesla, Silicon Valley veteran investor Marc Andreessen, and Nobel laureate Konstantin Novoselov.

Eden’s Partner Mr. Calvin Chu Yee Ming, invited to serve as a judge of the Innovators Under 35 Singapore, was extremely pleased with the caliber of the candidates this year.

“The breadth of the fields that the innovators worked in was incredible. Many have demonstrated a clear sense of curiosity, tenacity, and inventiveness, but I was encouraged by how many researchers regularly go out of their way to help their peers. I am especially impressed by the prolific track record of high impact research that crosses multiple disciplines, and the wide range of applications that will come out of this year’s winners. This is a clear testament to the notion that world-class innovation can come out of Southeast-Asia,” he said.

To offer a primer into some of the emerging technologies, Eden is releasing a series of infographics revolving around EmTech’s key themes:


  • Healthcare & Life Science: Recent advances in Neuroengineering


  • Space 3.0, the Next Frontier


  • Sustainable innovations addressing real world challenges
