Making of the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia List
Forbes says: The 30 Under 30 Asia list took almost six months to put together. In addition to receiving thousands of nominations online, we tasked our dozen correspondents and researchers from every corner of the region to find the best of the best young entrepreneurs making waves in their respective industries. Our in-house team then sifted through the nominations and enlisted the help of 30 judges – legends in their fields – to help pick the final 300. When it comes to empowerment, the list doesn’t disappoint either. We celebrate the achievements of a number of talented women, some of whom have actually risked their lives for what they believe in. We include for example Malaysian entrepreneurs like Neelofa, 28, and Vivy Yusof, 29, who have launched successful businesses and are shattering stereotypes about Muslim women.
