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 giving them the opportunity to indulge in everything that the digital tech industry has to offer.

If you have shown outstanding accomplishments in the digital space, we want to honor you and invite you to our year-round program, which is full of exciting events and multiple touch-points — like TNW Conference, Talent Sessions, and Deep Dives.

A panel of judges will sift through the thousands of applications in order to make a decision based on the following criteria: relevant work experience, side projects, education, personal accomplishments, and your personal webpage, in order to find the best candidates.

Sign up before December 23, 2022 for a chance to make it onto the T500 list! Apply now — and don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity.
