As in previous years, the list features familiar faces alongside those who excel in their field, but remain under the radar for the public.
“Every year we are looking for a completely new thirty young and talented people. In those eleven years, what?
We are compiling Forbes 30 under 30, so we have already presented 330 interesting personalities.
A number of them achieved even greater success in their field during the following years and still are today
