Look out, guys: for the first time, women dominate our annual tribute to B.C.’s most enterprising young business leaders. From clothiers to tech entrepreneurs to marketing dynamos, the class of 2019 shows that the province’s future is in good hands
Need a reminder of how much B.C. has going for it? Take a look at the 30 Under 30. In the sixth edition, our winners more than live up their predecessors’ high standards. As always, they hail from a wide range of industries, professions, and educational and social backgrounds, with ambitions as big as their origin stories are inspiring. Whether they pursue profit or not, many use their roles as leaders and entrepreneurs to improve the lives of others.
In a big change from previous years, though, 18 of the 30 Under 30 are female. They include several representatives from the tech sector—a sign that women are gaining ground in a field where they once had few opportunities. Ladies and gentlemen, we know you’re going places, but please stick around. Your province needs you.
