40 Under 40

They’re the hottest young stars in business across the globe. They’re innovators, disrupters, and job creators; in fact, it’s a pretty safe bet you’re going to be working for them someday — if you aren’t already! They’re in technology, yes, but also in movies, music, athletic wear, and even curry-flavored chocolate. And the scary thing is they’re just getting started.

Mark Zuckerberg

Founder and CEO, Facebook
Age: 27
Industry: Technology

The Harvard dropout and tech wizard is a household name, thanks in part to The Social Network, but the real-life script is still being written.

NEXT: Larry Page
