Forbes calls its 2019 30 Under 30 honorees “a collection of bold risk-takers who are putting a new twist on the old tools of the trade.” So it should come as no surprise that the MIT community is well represented among the 20 categories and 600-plus names.

Thirty-three MIT community members were named to this year’s list, including 27 alumni. Check out the MIT alumni, faculty, and students named to the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 list below. (All images via Forbes unless otherwise noted.)
