A select group of honorees — and over 1,600 young entrepreneurs and “game changers” from across the nation — currently gather in Philadelphia for Forbes 2nd annual Under 30 Summit.
Among the notable speakers during this three day conference that features an agenda full of panels, presentations, and keynotes, are Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes, Box founder and CEO Aaron Levie, YouTube star Michelle Phan, Kelly Osbourne, Global Health Corps’ Barbara Bush, Tinder CEO and co-founder Sean Rad, venture capitalists Winklevoss twins Cameron and Tyler, and Alex Morgan of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team.
In addition to thought-provoking discussion and mentoring, entrepreneurs also look forward to the chance to win $1 million from a global social impact competition — the largest ever contest of its kind!
The first full day of the Summit kicks off with major sponsor Baume & Mercier’s presentation of the “Doer Award,” presented to America’s richest self-made woman (and youngest female billionaire!) Elizabeth Holmes, Founder and CEO of Theranos, a blood testing company predicted to change medical screening for the world. Holmes’ award includes an engraved stainless steel watch from Baume & Mercier’s Classima collection and membership in the intensely private club of Doer Award winners… which now comprises herself and last year’s winner, Malala Yousafzai.
Other standouts in the conference include Shaun White, multiple gold medal winner, sharing how he has transformed from his old persona to an entrepreneurial juggernaut, and Monica Lewinsky, breakout star of last year’s Under 30 Summit, returning to discuss her whirlwind year since — and her new campaign to end cyberbullying.
30 Under 30 List Veteran and Superstar, A$AP Rocky, will close event on Tuesday with a Music Festival also featuring Vine-star-to-charttopper Shawn Mendes, literal band of brothers Hanson, and violinist Lindsey Stirling.
