Fortune Magazine's 40 under 40 is a list of individuals whom editors at Fortune magazine consider to be the most influential young leaders for the year. The Fortune 40 under 40 has existed in two phases: First, from 1999-2003, purely as a numeric ranking of wealth, capturing the first dot com boom.[1] The current iteration started in 2009 and is a ranking of power and influence.[2] The list includes business executives, political figures, sportsmen, fashion designers, and others who are under forty years old.[3] The majority of the list members are business executives from the tech industry.[4]

The list often features business men and women that have made their names in various industries, and does not always choose candidates from blue chip industries.
