Those annual lists are upon us once again! Forbes has announced its influential second edition of the 30 Under 30 list, highlighting the biggest stars of tomorrow.
The publication chooses 30 standout people in 15 diverse categories, totaling 450 under 30.
Among the groupings are Art & Style, Hollywood, Media, Sports, and Technology.
The list included some names that already jump off the page, like gold medal gymnast Gabrielle Douglas (17), singers Adele (24) and Bruno Mars (27), and Justin Bieber (18).
Some of today’s titans of industry are recognized, such as Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg (28), Tumblr founder and CEO David Karp (26), and Mashable founder and CEO Pete Cashmore (27).
New York Times television writer Brian Stelter (27) is among the “honorees.” Stelter created our sister site TVNewser.
Having numerous categories, the list, which will be featured in the January 21st issue of Forbes magazine, offers a broad selection of future movers and shakers.
How about Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams (28) or Matt Mullenweg (28), the creator of WordPress?
According to Forbes executive editor, Michael Noer, “The 30 under 30 represent the best creative, intellectual and entrepreneurial energy of an entire generation. These are people that you will be hearing about for a very long time. They exemplify the positive spirit of entrepreneurial capitalism that Forbes has championed for nearly a century.”
