Ten years ago, Forbes launched its signature 30 Under 30 list. A decade later, the world has changed, but one thing has remained the same—the power of young people to come together and solve some of the world’s trickiest problems. Members of our 2021 list alone have raised over $1 billion collectively in funding. Others have built multimillion-dollar companies with no funding at all.

To celebrate all that’s been accomplished in the past 10 years, Forbes is assembling a dynamic roster of leaders, entrepreneurs and U30 Listers past and present for our 2021 Forbes Under 30 Summit. We’ll shine a spotlight on some of the biggest innovators of the last decade and explore what the future has in store as we enter a brand new era.
