Forbes 30 Under 30 is the list that kicks off the new year for enterprising young people. We are proud to say that C & C Founder and CEO Jaclyn Johnson made last year’s list (hello, #humblebrag). This year, we are even more proud to see that many past speakers and professionals that we work with have landed a coveted spot.
When we asked Stephanie Korey of Away what making the list meant to her, she said: "What I'm most proud of at Away is the early team that my co-founder Jen (who was Forbes Under 30 last year!) and I have brought together. It's great to start the year with well deserved recognition for everything the team at Away has accomplished up to now, and it's awesome momentum for all the even greater things we have up our sleeves 2016. Stay tuned!"
Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle of Sakara Life felt similarly. The founders said, "Wow, it's almost impossible to capture how we feel. We started Sakara as two childhood best friends going through our own personal food journeys, making meals in our tiny NYC kitchen, and delivering them ourselves on bicycles. Today, we're not only feeding thousands of people across the country, but helping them live healthier, happier lives and feel amazing in their bodies. Being recognized by Forbes is such an honor and truly an example of the meaning of Sakara - 'the manifestation of thoughts to things.'"
Our hats and heels are off to this fine group women. We look forward to seeing what 2016 brings you.
