Know a young leader, innovator or entrepreneur who is perfect for this award?

We’re looking for 21- to 39-year-olds: the go-getters, the mobilizers and hot-shots in Colorado who are using their youthful energy to take care of business.

In its 11th year, ColoradoBiz will highlight young pros who are creating game-changing technologies, business strategies, products and services that will shape the next generation of business and grow jobs and commerce in Colorado’s economy.

The 50 finalists and Top 25 Young Professionals are selected by a panel of judges based on the nominees’ professional success, community involvement and philanthropic endeavors.

Nominations for the 2022 Top 25 Most Influential Young Professionals in Colorado are now closed.
