Forbes has issued its annual 30 Under 30 feature, in which the finance website honors 600 young men and women under the age of 30 across 20 different categories. One of those categories includes gaming and this year's list runs the gamut from streamers, to developers, to esports competitors, and all the way to entrepreneurs.
Notable names under the Gaming portion of the Forbes 30 Under 30 include voice actress Ashly Burch, Discord co-founder Stanislav Vishnevskiy, Counter Logic Gaming founder George Georgallidis, esports attorney Bryce Blum, Twitch Partner head Anele Andeshmand, various forces behind livestreaming initiatives at Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer, as well as esports competitors like League of Legends powerhouse Bjergsen of Team SoloMid and Smash 4 Evo winner Saleem "Salem" Young.
This year's class was nominated by a panel of three judges: Sony Interactive Media President Shawn Layden, ESL CEO Ralf Reichert, and EA Motive Studios Design Director and Portal lead designer Kim Swift.
