The solutions of tomorrow we begin to think them today.
Thinkers of Tomorrow is a place where participants develop and feed their innovative and creative spirit. A total immersion of two weeks where participants give solutions to the challenges of the moment using their curiosity, imagination and technology.
A program open to girls and boys from 11 to 14 years old with the desire to explore and learn that takes place at the 22@, the heart of innovation in Barcelona. Participants work on their projects, guided by professionals from each sector who share their knowledge, and motivate participants to think and bring their ideas to life.
But as an idea it is not an innovation until the market accepts it (according to the MIT), during these two weeks, additionally participants learn to communicate and market their ideas as if they were real products.

How did Thinkers of Tomorrow start
The Thinkers of Today seek and prepare the Thinkers of Tomorrow.
This initiative comes together from the concerns of 2 Thinkers of Today entrepreneurs who, after coinciding in the past, decide to join their purpose of creating a better future by empowering young girls and boys. Ricard Huguet (MIT) entrepreneur and concerned about scientific vocations and Jorge Salas (Harvard) serial technology entrepreneur, jointly develop this wonderful project: Thinkers of Tomorrow.
We firmly believe that if we transmit girls and boys from a young age, not only the importance of technology, innovation and entrepreneurship, but also the importance of Social and Corporate Responsibility and ethics, when they are decision makers, they will transfer these lessons to the foundations of business, changing the world each of them from their prism (technology, ecology, health ...)
