A few days ahead of WEF 2022 annual meeting from May 22It has been announced that about 100 innovative tech firms have joined the Technology Pioneers community this year, of which five are Indian start-ups.

The 2022 cohort is forging new paths in healthcare, food production and more with cutting-edge technologies with young and growing companies, the WEF said. The 2022 Tech Pioneers are based in 30 countries – with Vietnam, Rwanda and the Czech Republic for the first time.

Among the five Indian start-ups:

  • Vahan – is building a full-stack labor marketplace for blue-collar workers,
  • SmartCoin Financials – is a tech-driven financial inclusion platform empowering the underserved
  • Recykal – is Asia’s first circular economy marketplace.
  • Proeon – Is creating next-generation plant proteins with superior taste, texture and nutrition
  • Pandocorp – is making supply chain execution intelligent with a fast logistics cloud

the WEF said about the Indian startups on the list.

“The 2022 cohort of Technology Pioneers is already bringing great changes to industries around the world,” said Saemoon Yoon, Technology Pioneers Community Lead, WEF.

“By joining this community these emerging tech leaders can continue to show not only their companies within the impressive tech advancements but also how their companies are helping build a better future for us all,” Yoon added.

Over one-third of the selected companies are led by women this year, well above the industry average.

From the US, food-tech start-up Bonumose has selected for transforming global food systems with its technology to support its affordable production of healthy alternative sugars. However, Luxembourg’s mission space has been selected for developing a satellite-based space weather intelligence system.

This year’s companies will be joining an impressive group of alumni that include many household names, such as Airbnb, Google, Kickstarter, Mozilla, Spotify, TransferWise, Twitter and Wikimedia.

The start-ups are also invited to attend WEF workshops and events and high-level discussions during their two years in the community.
