The world's greatest event for young leaders, founders, investors and creators.

Join the best young leaders, founders and creators for a life-changing four days of connecting, learning, teaching and building. The 2019 Forbes Under 30 Summit is more an immersive experience than a static conference: a private music festival, A-list speakers, investor speed-pitching, industry-focused field trips, a legendary pub crawl, a world-famous food festival and a powerful day of community service.

This October the future captains of technology, entertainment, finance, fashion, food and philanthropy are gathering in one place. Will you be there?
