Technology Pioneers 2020

The Technology Pioneers of 2020 bring together 100 early to growth-stage companies from around the world that are pioneering new technologies and innovations, ranging from the use of artificial intelligence to diagnose cancers and quantum computing systems, to carbon capture and removing technologies, cell-grown meat production and use of microbiome to track goods.

By joining this community, Technology Pioneers begin a two-year journey where they are part of the World Economic Forum’s initiatives, activities and events, bringing their cutting-edge insight and fresh thinking to critical global discussions.

Technology Pioneers are an integral part of the Forum’s Global Innovators community, which is an invitation-only group of the world’s most promising start-ups and scale-ups that are at the forefront of technological and business model innovation.

Strategic insights and contextual intelligence from the World Economic Forum

Technology Pioneers are also part of the Forum’s Strategic Intelligence ecosystem, which helps industry leaders and decision-makers navigate transformations across industries, economies and global issues based on the insight and perspectives of the experts and innovators engaged with the Forum.
