Every year, Forbes India strives to find 30 young and dynamic individuals who have made significant strides in the field they operate in.

This year, we have one new category—CRYPTOCURRENCY—and one revised category—SCIENCE & INNOVATION is now SCIENCE & DEEP TECH.

With the gold rush for cryptocurrency, its emergence as a new and upcoming asset class, and the feverish enthusiasm with which Indians, especially youngsters, are taking to it, we believe we may find some hidden gems striving to move the needle in India.

The Science & Innovation category, which always focussed on young innovators, is simply revised to put the spotlight on the major strides that are being taken in the Deep Tech sector in India—hence the category now is Science & Deep Tech.
