Entrepreneurial rising stars are & # 39; It's hard to find ̵
So to narrow the pool down a bit, Business Insider asked executives from various industries, including technology, marketing and consulting, to select female executives, CEOs and founders at or below 30 years of age.
From the 70 submissions we received, we pulled out these eight businesswomen based on nominations from a wide range of industry experts, including:
- Marc Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix;
- Nancy Duarte, CEO and principal of Duarte, Inc. management consulting firm Orsatech; and
- Geoff Ralston, President of Y Combinator.
Only 6.6% of Fortune 500's current CEOs are not men, and yet research shows time and again that having women at the helm of a company reaps significant benefits. That is why we are pleased to acknowledge the impressive work of these people who are making waves in healthcare, fashion, education, technology and elsewhere.
