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:
— BΞN TOWΞRS (@TowersBen) January 21, 2016
— Noa Mintz (@noa_mintz) January 17, 2016
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.

The Richtopia top young entrepreneurs list is compiled using a number of metrics combining to produce rank order. Two of the main influencers on a persons ranking are their social media profiles and regular media coverage. Our sister company Marketing Runners specialises in increasing the profile of brands and personalities so if there are people you think should be higher on our list or someone who is not included on the list and wants greater exposure, then get them to contact the Marketing Runners team who may be able to help.
