As the exclusive sponsor of MIT Technology Review’s (TR) Innovators Under 35 (TR35) program, JPMorgan Chase kicked off the TR35 segments of the three-day EmTech conference for the second year in a row. Innovators Under 35 is an annual award recognizing outstanding innovators across industries.
Through this event, MIT Technology Review brings together global changemakers, innovators, and industry veterans to distinguish what’s probable, plausible, and possible with tomorrow’s breakthrough technologies.
Michele Willis, Head of Consumer & Community Banking Infrastructure & Production Management, JPMorgan Chase, introduced honorees named for their work in helping to solve humanity's greatest challenges and discussed the firm’s commitment to innovation.
“At JPMorgan Chase, we also serve as a conduit for great impact, “ Willis said.
“We pride ourselves in being part of a company that not only partners globally to support, advise and invest, but also connects deeply within our communities to help address some of the most pressing environmental and social challenges of our time. For example, our firm has committed to finance or facilitate more than $2.5 trillion over 10 years to advance climate action and sustainable development. We also are investing in clean energy in our offices– in 2021 we completed the 2nd largest commercial office solar installation in the world,” she added.
