Young Entrepreneurs Top 100: From Brian Wong to Amanda Gutterman, These Are the Most Powerful Entrepreneurs Under 25

Young Entrepreneurs Top 100

Whether you’re a would-be entrepreneur or have spent decades being an entrepreneur. You could be worse-off than to read the short biographies of young entrepreneurs who’ve been through the journey before.

So we’ve compiled a list from top young entrepreneurs,. It’s a list of influential millennials at building businesses and being pro-active, particularly in the social media sphere. These are the leaders of the future.

Here’s what some of them said about this list:

Our young entrepreneurs list is an automatic algorithm based on social media influence, Klout scores and a secret recipe. We take into account various metrics from Twitter, Facebook, Wikipedia, Youtube, LinkedIn and Instagram. The list gets updated each Thursday. If you believe you can arise a creative impulse in people (or you know a business leader who can), you can add yourself by clicking the “join” button. All entries are considered by our admins, and RichTopia reserves the right to accept or forbid people from the list as it deems fit.
