2016 30under30 logo horizontalForbes has released its sixth annual “30 Under 30” list, which features 600 young innovators, entrepreneurs and leaders who are honored for “challenging the conventional wisdom and rewriting the rules for the next generation.” 

The list includes 30 honorees for each of the 20 categories that make up the list, of which one is manufacturing.

 "Over six years, the Forbes 30 Under 30 list has emerged as the way that the world discovers the next generation of entrepreneurs and game-changers. These are the people that will run every field for the next 50 years,” says Randall Lane, editor of Forbes Magazine.

This year, one in every six of 30 under 30 list members are immigrants, originating from 44 different countries and exemplifying the success of immigrants as well as the thriving American dream, according to Forbes. Thirty-six percent of these list members live and work on the East Coast and 39 percent on the West Coast.
