Impressing and inspiring: The 20 Under 40 Class of 2023
SINCE 2013, LONDON’S 20 Under 40 program, presented by Lexus of London, has celebrated younger Londoners who are moving the city forward.
As it has been for the past few of years, it’s a particularly noteworthy class this year, as we’ve seen many of our Top 40s roll with the punches the pandemic and the post-pandemic economy has thrown at them. It’s a great collection of entrepreneurs, innovators, healthcare providers and visionaries who give countless hours to make London a better place to live.
The 20 Under 40 Class of 2023 includes leaders across a range of industries excelling in their individual endeavours. But if there is a commonality among them, it is that they are creating opportunities not just for themselves, but also for others. They are building companies that provide careers, doing research that improves and lengthens lives, creating new products and technologies and pushing for sustainable practices that benefit both people and corporations.
It’s not enough to work hard and play hard to be a 20 Under 40 ― you must change the playing field and engage with the community. As a group, the 20 Under 40 Class of 2023 displays a strong entrepreneurial bent ― they’re innovative self-starters giving back in unique and interesting ways. Not only are they a hopeful sign of what our city is to become, they are a barometer of what our city is right now. And that is something of which we all should be proud.
Please join us in congratulating these outstanding young professionals. This year’s winners will be profiled in the upcoming May/June issue of London Inc. ― and celebrated at our 2023 20 Under 40 Gala event on Thursday June 8 at 100 Kellogg Lane!
