Saygin Yalcin named Fortune 40 under 40!
Welcome to the 2014 Fortune 40 under 40, our list of the most influential young people in business. They’re in technology, yes, but also finance, fashion, film, real estate and more. They’re all disrupting—and they’re all just getting started.
Webrazzi: Aylık iş ve ekonomi dergisi Fortune’un Türkiye edisyonu, her yıl düzenli olarak yayınladığı 40 Yaş Altı 40 yönetici listesinin bu yılki sonuçlarını açıkladı. Türkiye’nin en başarılı, 40 yaşın altındaki 40 yöneticisini seçen Fortune Türkiye’nin listesinde teknoloji ve özellikle internet girişimcilerinin ağırlığı dikkat çekiyor.
Türkiye listelemesinde 40 yöneticinin yüzde 30’undan fazlasını internet girişimcileri oluşturuyor ve bunun küresel bir trend olduğunu söyleyebiliriz. Zira, Fortune’un bir süre önce yayınladığı 40 Under 40 listesinin zirvesinde, hayır Mark Zuckerberg değil, Uber kurucu ve CEO’su Travis Kallanick ve Airbnb kurucu ve CEO’su Brian Chesky yer almıştı. WhatsApp CEO’su Jan Koum, Yahoo CEO’su Marissa Mayer, Instagram kurucu ortağı ve CEO’su Kevin Systrom listenin ilk 10’undaki isimlerden bazılarıydı.
