NEW DELHI: The annual 40 under 40 list from Fortune magazine has been published.
The 2022 edition of Fortune's 40 under 40 list, which also features renowned artist Rihana and the TikToker with the most followers worldwide, Khaby Lame, features two entrepreneurs of Indian descent, Kanav Kariya and Ankit Gupta.
The people who will have a big impact on business in 2022 are highlighted in the list
The categories for the 40 under 40 are as follows: venture and startups, culture and society, finance and cryptocurrencies, tech and innovation, and health and bioscience.
Kanav Kariya began working at the Jump Trading startup incubator for cryptocurrency businesses as an intern, but last year the company gave him control of its newly renamed, 170-employee digital assets branch, Jump Crypto.
Since then, he has managed billions of dollars in investments in the crypto sector and assisted in establishing the company as a leading Web3 player.
Regarding his aspirations for the future, Kariya told Fortune that he wants Jump Crypto to "create an important infrastructure that is a part of the industry's furniture as it scales.
Gupta started the business in 2017 after purchasing a single clinic in Redwood City, California.
Then, in 2020, government rules were loosened to permit the online prescription of more opioid-treatment drugs.
Since then, Bicycle Health has treated 20,000 patients, expanded to 29 states, and raised $83 million in venture capital, according to the statement.
With the USD 50 million in funding Bicycle received in June 2022, Gupta tells Fortune he aims to increase the number of health insurance that offer Bicycle's services over the next few quarters, improve Bicycle's technology, and expand to six additional states.
This year's list includes founders, executives, investors, and activists who are pursuing opportunities, empowering others, researching cures for illnesses that affect millions of people, fostering connections between people, building on their achievements as athletes and entertainers, blazing new trails in their fields, and even starting new ones, according to Fortune.
