The Island’s first 30 Under 30 campaign was launched a few weeks ago, and has got off to a flying start with a crazy amount of entries already flying in.
We had a feeling we would unearth some inspiring stories and have been blown away by the talent and selflessness of the the Island’s younger generation.
The initiative is sponsored by the Douglas based company Newfield, who are a passionate about supporting the endeavours and achievements of young people on the Island.
To celebrate ‘30 under 30’, Gef and Newfield are hosting an official launch event at Barclays Eagle Lab, on Thursday 19th July, 5 – 7pm.
The event is free to attend, and you can sign up here.
Mark Reynolds, Director at Newfield said;
“We’re really impressed with the calibre of entries received so far.
The traditional ways of doing things are growing old and young people are rewriting the rules. With 31% of the Island’s community being under 30, it is time to put these visionaries, disruptors and achievers on display.
We want to ensure we encourage as many entries as possible, as to truly represent outstanding young individuals on the Isle of Man.
We look forward to meeting anyone who is interested in entering themselves or finding out more about the awards so they can enter their colleagues, family or friends.
We’d like to thank Elissa and Simon from Barclays for letting us host our launch event at the new Barclays Eagle Lab, which a a great facility for young ambitious Islanders”.
If you can’t make the event but you’d like to nominate yourself or someone else, you can do it here…
