Empact, in partnership with Startup America and others, is showcasing 100 “top entrepreneurs in the US age 30 and under with revenues over $100,000.”
The list they have gathered as of today, with a looming deadline of August 7th is impressive. Diamond engagement ring designer, office furniture distributor, and an Intern Queen to name just a few are among the 203 entrepreneurs that are under thirty who have applied.
While the list is impressive, it’s also very much male dominated with only 20% of ownership coming from women, which is why YFE is reminding you all that if you meet the criteria below, to please apply today.
The criteria for applying includes:
- 100% of the founders must be 30 years or younger as of October 1, 2012.
- Business must have over $100,000 in revenue for 2011 or year-to-date in 2012.
- Located in the United States.
- Public companies are not eligible.
You will be in good company with the average age of applicants being 27. There is no application fee and if chosen for the top 100, you will be recognized at an event at the White House in September.
I know more of you should be on this list, so be sure to apply today. Come back to the YFE Facebook Page and share your link when its up so we can all put our votes in for you.
