Your talent, recognized

Once again we are searching for the top 500 most talented people under the age of 30!

The T500 is TNW’s curated list of exceptional individuals in the space of product (design), developing and engineering, sales and marketing, academia and research, and media.

The list is dedicated to celebrating these talents and allowing them to indulge in everything that the digital tech industry has to offer as well as a year-round program full of exciting events and multiple touch-points — like TNW Conference, Talent Sessions, and Deep Dives.

This year we have received an overwhelming number of applications that a panel of judges is now in the process of carefully reviewing based on the following criteria: relevant work experience, side projects, education, personal accomplishments, and your personal webpage, to find the best candidates.

The application deadline is already closed, but be sure to stay connected with us as we will be announcing great news soon! The T500 program is a great opportunity to connect with some of the most talented individuals in the digital tech industry, you don't wanna miss it!

Talents will receive an email on February 6 saying if they made it onto the list or not.
