Despite working predominantly with young professionals, MarketStorm Global still continues to be amazed by the levels of determination and creativity displayed by young business professionals. To highlight this level of talent the firm have reviewed this year’s 30 Under 30 list from Forbes.
Every year, business magazine Forbes looks to inspire and amaze with its list of 30 groundbreaking entrepreneurs under the age of 30. The list, which assesses the achievements of over 15,000 entrepreneurs before whittling down to just 600, before being sorted into industry categories, has for years acted as a source of motivation for young people looking to break into business. Whilst many young professionals may worry that they face greater adversity in business due to their age and lack of experience, the 30 Under 30 list helps to prove that age is in fact, just a number, and that with focus, commitment and a creative flair anything is possible.
As avid supporters of youth entrepreneurship, MarketStorm Global follow the list closely every year, and often share the most inspirational success stories with their young associates to help them understand the endless opportunities business creates. In a bid to further inspire young professionals and budding entrepreneurs, MarketStorm Global have reviewed their top 4 from this year’s entrepreneurial super stars under 30.
