They are the set of millennials who have worked towards etching their names in truly golden words. Entrepreneur magazine is glad to present the game changers of 2018 as they represent the very idea of leadership not just in the workplace but across society in general. For us, they have the power of taking charge. Our fiery set of 35 under 35; second year in a row now has become a bar of achievement for many. Interestingly, NR Narayana Murthy had an ambition of becoming an entrepreneur before turning 35. This time, ironically, we have Mr. Murthy's son Rohan Murty on the cover for charting his own path. This year's list is an interesting mix of artists, yogis, sports champions and entrepreneurs from host of industries doing path-breaking work.


Our research process was three fold:

a) Interviews by the Entrepreneur India team and various other sources including media coverage.

B) Inviting nominations on

c) spreading the word through advertisement and social media.

We have only taken for consideration those who were under the age of 35 as on February 01, 2018 to make sure it matches with the magazine cutoff date accurately. In the case of enterprises with multiple co-founders, we have considered those wherein all of them are under the age of 35.
