In the month of February, Forbes India released 2018’s ‘30 under 30’ which included an array of familiar names and faces, who in their 20s are "shaping new India".
The names were selected on the basis of three broad criteria - the extent of the impact of their achievements, their ability to disrupt the status quo, scalability of the business or line of work and their potential to stay a long-term player, says the magazine.
This year, Forbes particularly seeded out names of those who didn't necessarily have access to an 'influential lineage'. Furthermore, Forbes assured that the quality of nominee profiles reaffirmed that the old adage
‘if you’re good enough, you’re old enough’ holds true even today.'
The first edition was published in 2014, and ever since the selection process for aspirants has become more rigorous, states a report by the Business magazine.
“Generation Z is rewriting the rules of the game, and playing it hard too. It is putting its mind and money where its beliefs are, with gumption and imagination. Our list is representative across 15 categories and though it is exhaustive, it is not definitive, given India’s vast geographical spread” Forbes India said in a report.
