New Delhi: Thirty young enterprenuers and innovators across across 15 categories have made it to Forbes 'India 30 Under 30' 2018.

The fifth edition of Forbes India 30 Under 30 has selected names that meet three broad criterias -- the extent of impact of their achievements, and their ability to disrupt the status quo; scalability of the business or line of work and; their potential to stay a long-term player.

Forbes India has selected names in various sectors including entertainment, finance and venture capital, retail, social entrepreneurs and enterprise technology.

Indian cricketers Jasprit Bumrah, Harmanpreet Kaur; actors Bhumi Pednekar, Mithila Palkar and bollywood singer Jubin Nautiyal have been featured in the list.

“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 wrote.

Forbes said that the sheer growth in the number of names on the longlist and the quality of nominee profiles have reaffirmed the old adage –‘if  you’re good enough, you’re old enough’.
