Crain’s 40 Under 40 Class of 2015
There’s something about New York that inspires people to come here—and motivates people from here—to pursue their dreams at breakneck speed. The swirling amalgam of energy, power, flavors and scents intersects with the building blocks of business that New York so readily offers: access to talented workers, capital and customers. That magic sauce has created a generation of New Yorkers who are changing the world right here at home. This year’s 40 Under 40 range from a theater producer and a real estate dealmaker to a scientist growing leather in test tubes and a psychiatrist with an app that can improve patient care. They work across every field imaginable, but they all have one thing in common: a burning desire to make things happen quickly. As the inimitable New Yorker Dorothy Parker once said: “New York is always hopeful. Always it believes that something good is about to come off, and it must hurry to meet it.” So, too, this year’s 40s.
