Meet the Young Global Leaders class of 2017

Today the World Economic Forum announced the Class of 2017 – 100 of the world’s most up-and-coming artists, business leaders, social entrepreneurs, tech pioneers, thinkers and policymakers. They include a tech entrepreneur whose mobile app has helped over 100,000 smallholder farmers in Africa, a Yale Graduate who shunned a big-city salary to help millions of villagers in rural China, a micro-insurance pioneer who is providing a safety net for the most vulnerable segments of society, a teenage runaway who rose from Delhi slum to found a multi-million dollar augmented reality firm, and transformative scientists who are pioneers in gene therapy, artificial intelligence, experimental psychology and mathematics.

Developing gene editing technology, building computers that recognize human emotions, leading multi-billion dollar companies to renewable energy, and rebuilding civil society in a war torn nation. These are some of the Young Global Leaders Class of 2017 awardees who are making outstanding contribution to their field and society. Each year, we select the most innovative, enterprising and socially minded men and women under the age of 40 who are pushing boundaries and rethinking the world around them. This year’s class of Young Global Leaders gives hope that they are ready to tackle the world’s most complex and pressing challenges. They are invited to join a community and a five-year leadership journey that we believe will help them break down silos, bridge cultures and use their collective skills to get things done for positive impact across private, public and civil society organizations.
