30 under 30

Die Welt kämpft mit großen Herausforderungen, die Zukunft wirkt zunehmend düster. Die diesjährige Forbes Under 30 DACH 2020-Liste kommt also genau zum richtigen Zeitpunkt, um ein wenig Optimismus zu verbreiten. Auf ihr finden sich auch dieses Jahr wieder 90 außergewöhnliche junge Menschen aus Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz, die zeigen, welche Kraft unternehmerisches Denken und innovative Ideen haben, um unsere Probleme zu lösen. Aus über 1.500 Nominierungen und mithilfe einer hochkarätigen Jury wählten wir 30 Listmaker pro Land aus. Darunter finden sich Start-up-Gründer und VC-Investoren, Aktivistinnen und Publizistinnen, E-Sports-Stars und Tennisprofis. Oder: 90 Menschen, die die Zukunft nicht mehr ganz so trist erscheinen lassen.

FINDING A MENTOR

It is obvious that the effects of the corona crisis will have dramatic consequences for all our lives and that it comes with economic tragedies and severe suffering. Nevertheless, every crisis always has the potential to create something good: Challenges that seem insurmountable and obstacles in the path always offer the chance to become aware of one’s own strengths.
