Lenovo recently announced its newest cohort of Lenovo Innovators – a group of global content creators that resemble Lenovo’s Smarter Tech for All (STFA) vision. STFA is the idea that smarter technology can help solve problems, create opportunities and enhance the way we all live, learn and work.

Being an “Innovator” goes beyond designing and using new devices. Real innovation happens when people see a problem and are passionately committed to solving it. These change-driven content creators embody that spirit and will be using Lenovo’s products and solutions in a unique way to elevate their missions, tackle some of society’s biggest challenges and bring awareness to key issues around the world.

Throughout the year, our Lenovo Innovators will be telling their stories through a series of videos and articles and sharing their personal experiences on Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok using #LenovoInnovators. Read more about last year’s inspiring cohort.

  • They are all smart

  • What a remarkable group of people!  I can't wait to read more about these people and what they are doing, especially Ms. Huera and what she is doing with healthcare.

  • While these people are quite different in their background, I would say that characteristically, they share some traits.  They are all smart, strong willed people who are determined to make a positive change.

  • Congrats on the cohort! 

  • Nice to see so many talented people doing good things for society.

  • Such a varied and interesting group of folks, thanks for sharing with us.

  • What a thrilling and diverse group of people who are being recognized for what they do.  I can't wait to visit(among others) Mr. Rocha's tiktok and instagram channels.

  • All of these people sound amazing, they are very impressive. When you think the world is too dark, then you hear about people like this. It make's me smile again that there is still good in the world..

  • Re-reading this list and noticing far too many "activists" as opposed to actual people doing the work to make things happen. A disturbing trend of the last two decades.

  • Congrats on the cohort! Looking forward to hearing more from this group!
