Forbes Việt Nam magazine on Monday announced the 30 under 30 list which featured some of the most influential faces in the field of business and start-ups, social enterprises, arts and creative industries, entertainment, education and science.
This was the fourth time Forbes Việt Nam announced the list to honour young people who made significant contributions to their fields.
According to Forbes Việt Nam, the difference this year was the diversification of the fields, with more influential faces from internet platforms, such as fashionistas and beauty vloggers.
Some young entrepreneurs who gained success in the list were Phạm Khánh Linh (27, founder of Logivan), Nguyễn Thị Thu Hà (26, CEO MindX Education), Nguyễn Tuấn Cường (30, co-founder Amanotes), and Trần Bảo Khánh (28, co-founder Rens Original).
The list also features popular faces such as soccer stars Nguyễn Quang Hải (23), Chương Thị Kiều (25) and Huỳnh Như (29), who contributed to the success of Việt Nam’s national football teams in regional competitions last year, especially the SEA Games.
Forbes Việt Nam said that the young were not indifferent to existing issues, but, in many ways, contributed to the community and socio-economic development.
First introduced in 2015, Forbes’ 30 under 30 list became the inspiration for the young who desired success.
Forbes will host the Under 30 Summit 2020 on April 9, which will focus on breakthrough advancements in science and technology, start-up projects and career and sustainable development.
