While it’s always impressive to see lists like Fortune’s 40 under 40, Forbes’ 30 under 30, Business Insider’s 25 under 25, and Peter Thiel’s 20 under 20, there’s no doubt that our list of the 10 under 10 is the most anticipated award of the year, at least when it comes to awards that rank a specific number of people who happen to be under that specific age. So, without further ado, let’s unveil this year’s distinguished winners:
