While 2021 is only about half over, we already have the well requested 40 Under 40 list in mind.
This year’s selection process will be slightly different from the previous year’s 30 Under 30 campaign, which was unfortunately cut short due to unforeseen circumstances.
The 2021 40 Under 40 recruitment will begin this week, where people can submit an individual they believe deserves to be on the list. (Yes, you can submit yourself). In August, The Detroit Entrepreneur will announce their selected official list of 75 nominees that the public will vote on this time around. While we select 75 individuals from the submission process as official nominees, it is now the public that will vote for the lucky 40.
