30 is the New 40

From CEOs to entrepreneurs to philanthropists, these millennials are proving success doesn’t have to come later in life. Be inspired by some of UBC’s young talents – movers and shakers, influencers and game changers – who have achieved much before the age of 30, and who made this year’s prestigious BCBusiness Top 30 under 30 list.  Learn of their dreams and aspirations and the challenges and hurdles they overcame to achieve success.

Presented in partnership with the Sauder School of Business.
