Stories of Winners

Yael Cohen, 27
Founder and Owner
Company: Fuck Cancer
South African-born Cohen deviated from what seemed like a clearcut career path in the fast-paced world of finance after watching her mother struggle with cancer. When her mother went into remission, Cohen created a T-shirt for her with the unapologetic phrase “Fuck Cancer” written across the chest, and her passion project was born.

30 Under 30 2015 Nomination

You can nominate anyone who resides and works in B.C. and was born after April 1, 1985 (yes, we feel old, too). We're looking for people who are excelling professionally—innovating in their industry, making competitors nervous and generally changing the world. But we also want those with hearts of gold—giving back to people and the planet. Ultimately we want to hear about big brains and big hearts and how this rare combination is raising the profile of business in our province.The nomination process is simple and free: just fill in the fields below and submit. 

Winning Tip: When you type in your description of the nominee, tell us in 150 words or less why this person deserves to be considered as one of our Top 30 Under 30. This is the important part because it's your sales pitch to get your nomination to the next round. Get specific with recent accomplishments. General praise like "because she's awesome" will not do.

Entry Deadline 01 Mar, 2015
