Forbes recently announced its 10th annual 30 Under 30 list for 2021 highlighting young entrepreneurs, activists, scientists and entertainers who they say “give everyone reason to hope" at the end of a difficult year.
“Some are defying the odds and building businesses despite COVID-19; others are helping to fight the illness, serving on hospital frontlines or working with A.I. to discover new drugs. Collectively, our Under 30 trailblazers have raised over $1 billion in venture funding and are proof positive that ambition and innovation can’t be quarantined,” according to Forbes.
An expert community narrowed the nominees down to the final 2021 list. Among those selected were three honorees we are proud to call Phi Kappa Phi members.
