Fortune noted that the 2020 list is different from the ones done previously as it reflects a series of transformation that the business scene has undergone during this pandemic year. In total, there are five different categories covered: Finance, Technology, Healthcare, Government and Politics, and Media and Entertainment.
For this year’s 40 Under 40, we’re highlighting 40 influential people in each of these five categories:
🇺🇸 Government and politics
🎥 Media and entertainment

The finance category also includes other notable cryptocurrency industry leaders such as Bakkt President Adam White, a prominent member of the “Coinbase Mafia,” as well as Anchorage Co-Founder Diogo Mónica.
“We needed to go bigger—and search more widely. Just one list of 40 emerging leaders wouldn’t be enough,” the business magazine explained. This is the reason why each category holds the top 40 people under the age of 40 — making a total of 200 individuals across all sectors.
The very first “40 Under 40” list, which was published back in 2012, was topped by Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, and former Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer.
