Nominate a rising star

Find our 2018 nomination form here.

Coming in May: Crain’s Chicago Business will single out 20 area professionals who stand out already in business, law, real estate, civic life or culture — and who haven’t turned 30 yet. And while their names may not be familiar to our readers now, we’re looking for those who will be impactful in the future.

Help us out. Do you know of a 20-something (or an incredibly accomplished teen) who lives in the area who is a game-changer? Perhaps she has started a company or is shaking up an existing enterprise (in a good way). Perhaps he already has had an impact through politics, philanthropy or civic service. Or maybe this is simply someone whose star shines so bright it’s hard to ignore.

The deadline to complete the nomination form is January 17, 2018, at 11:59 p.m.
