This year, Crain’s Cleveland Business will single out 20 up-and-coming professionals who haven’t turned 30 yet. While their names might not be top of mind and they likely haven’t made their first million yet, there’s no denying these young professionals are making a mark on Northeast Ohio.

Do you know a 20-something we should know about? Nominate here

Maybe he or she has started an interesting company or is already disrupting their field for the better. Or perhaps he or she has already made an impact through their philanthropic or civic involvement. Curious what we are looking for?

Check out last year's class.

This year’s class of Twenty in their 20s will be profiled in the June 11 edition of Crain’s Cleveland Business and honored at a networking reception in June. Applicants must still be in their 20s as of the publication date.

Deadline to nominate: Tuesday, March 13, 2018. Also, please note that because of the work that goes into processing the volume of nominations for Twenty in their 20s, there is a fee of $25 for each nomination, which must be paid before the nomination will be considered.

Content provided may be published by Crain’s Cleveland Business. By completing this form, you agree to Crain’s use of the provided information in print, online and at the awards event.

Diversity will be taken into consideration when selecting honorees, including as it relates to the businesses and industries represented, as well as geography, age, race, culture, gender and experience.
