TR50 Special Event | Join the MIT Enterprise Forum of New York City and Technology Review Magazine on March 15th at the iconic New York Academy of Sciences in Lower Manhattan for an evening of powerful networking and stimulating discussion celebrating the new TR50. This is a MUST ATTEND EVENT for all stakeholders in the innovation economy from technology development to business success.

The TR50 is Technology Review’s annual list of the 50 most innovative companies in the world. Each year, the editors of Technology Review look for the companies that have the most promising technologies, whether they are giant corporations or fledgling startups with initial venture capital investments. They narrow down the list by examining their business models, their strategies for deploying and scaling up their technologies, and the likelihood that they will succeed.

The result is the annual TR50 list, which includes 25 public companies and 25 private companies across multiple sectors including biomedicine, computing, energy, materials, and the web. The 2011 list will be featured in the March/April issue of Technology Review and on on February 22, 2011.

Jason Pontin, Editor in Chief and Publisher of Technology Review, will kick off the event with an overview of the 2011 TR50 — Technology Review’s annual selection of the 50 most innovative public and private companies in biomedicine, computing, energy, materials and the web.
