Our M.Eng. alumni are changing the world! From hundreds of nominations, both Ava (Thibault Duchemin) and Dray Technologies (Anthony Sutardja) made Inc.’s list of 50 global entrepreneurs under 25. Congrats!
The finalists were chosen after being evaluated on the feasibility of the company’s vision. Additionally, a new criterion this year was that each company on the list was required to have either a finished product or prototype. The Kairos Society, an international organization that supports the development of entrepreneurs worldwide, helped develop the list; their CEO Alex Fiance pointed out that in addition to the criteria stated above, they were also looking for founders with “a bit of delusional optimism…[they must] believe they can enter and change billion-dollar industries.”
