The Tools of the Forbes 30 Under 30: 2019 Retail & Ecommerce

In November, Forbes released their annual “30 Under 30”, which is a set of lists featuring 600 of up-and-coming leaders, under 30 years old. We, Yaguara, are naturally drawn to the “Retail & Ecommerce” division.

This year’s list had an interesting portfolio. There were first-time entrepreneurs, teenage prodigies, community-focused warriors, and corporate leaders. It’s safe to say the only consistent theme was impressive traction. The Yaguara team extends another round of applause to these individuals, because regardless of purpose and niche these teams are pushing the industry forward.
