About Forbes 30 Under 30:

The Forbes 30 Under 30 franchise is a viral sensation. Spotlighting every year the achievements of 600 young, talented disruptors in one of 20 industry categories, Forbes compels and influences millennials. With nearly 1.3 trillion dollars of direct spending power, millennials have the potential to make or break the future of any brand, company or organization. In order to reach these potential brand partners, it is essential to understand millennials beyond the stereotypes.

Forbes 30 Under 30 offers amazing and original advertising integrations, from print and digital alignments to summit sponsorships. Last year’s summit featured outstanding events and speakers, including Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes, Box founder and CEO Aaron Levie, YouTube makeup star and entrepreneur Michelle Phan, and Alex Morgan of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team – so all eyes will be on this year’s summit in the Fall of 2016. Forbes is also expanding the Under 30 Summit globally with the inaugural Forbes Under 30 Summit EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) taking place in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv April 3-7.
