Now in its tenth year, Forbes is looking for the best and boldest young leaders, creators and thinkers for our annual Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list. Founders, funders, philanthropists, foodies, filmmakers, fashionistas — now is your chance to nominate the young innovators changing the world. Reporters, editors and expert judges consider a variety of factors, including: funding, revenue, social impact, inventiveness and potential. Nominee shortlists are shared with each category’s four-judge panel who select the final 30 listees in their assigned category. Nominations will be used to select local country lists, as well as our three tent-pole lists: North America: 600 honorees across 20 categories. Europe: 300 honorees across 10 categories. Asia: 300 honorees across 10 categories.
- The Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list covers 10 categories in total. These are
- Finance & Venture Capital;
- Consumer Technology;
- Enterprise Technology;
- Industry, Manufacturing & Energy;
- Media, Marketing & Advertising;
- Retail & E-commerce;
- Healthcare & Science;
- Social Entrepreneurs;
- The Arts (Art & Style and Food & Drink);
- and Entertainment & Sports.
If you’re not sure which category to choose, pick the most relevant one and our editors will review it and make changes if necessary.
If a company has more than one founder, we consider all those cofounders who are under 30 as a joint nomination. Make sure to include all those cofounders under 30 in the relevant slot on the form. If only one cofounder is under 30, we will still consider him/her as a solo nomination.
A wake-up call to cynics who think they have seen it all. The young, creative and bold minds on this year’s Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list are proof positive that the future will be new, exciting and profoundly different. These entrepreneurs are teaching viruses to fight cancer, developing technology to help astronauts breathe on Mars and creating strings of hit songs that fuel our daily playlists. And that’s just a few. Harnessing our expert community, robust reporting, vigorous vetting and the wisdom of the world’s top investors and entrepreneurs, we evaluated more than 15,000 nominees. The final product: 600 revolutionaries in 20 industries changing the course—and the face—of business and society.
