Forbes India on Monday released the sixth annual 2019 Forbes India 30 Under 30 list, featuring young achievers across several professions such as chefs, designers, entertainers, entrepreneurs, finance and sports persons.
The magazine this year has introduced new categories — industry, manufacturing and energy; advertising, marketing and media and agriculture—and bifurcated some from last year.
According to the magazine, 30 young achievers meet four broad criteria for selection: the impact of their achievements; their ability to disrupt the environment they operate in, and the scalability of the business or line of work, and, their potential to stay a long-term talent.
Spanning across 16 categories, all 30 honourees considered for selection were under the age of 30 as on December 31, 2018.
“The odds of success have little to do with whether you are 25 or 52. It’s just that starting early helps. And that’s why our 30 under 30 listing matters," said Brian Carvalho, Editor, Forbes India.
The achievers were arrived at following a three-fold research process: One, interviews by the Forbes India team with sources across relevant categories as well as through studies of databases and media coverage. Two, inviting applications on forbesindia.com from, or nominations of, entrepreneurs and professionals who fit the criteria. Three, spreading the word on social media.
"Team Forbes India’s 30 under 30 package is our effort to celebrate the audacity and enterprise of India’s youngest and budding talent," Carvalho said.
Here is the full list of 30 young achievers.
