Company Profile

2017 #grbj40under40



These annual awards recognize 40 individuals making a difference in West Michigan. Since 2002, the Grand Rapids Business Journal has recognized over 300 dynamic young professionals who have achieved personal success, demonstrated business leadership, and made significant civic contributions to our community. For consideration in 2017, applicants must be under 40 years old as of October 16, 2017.

Each October, the high-profile event is attended by hundreds of corporate, business, community and government leaders. The honorees will also be featured in a special publication this October that will be included in an issue of the Business Journal and viewable online. Full details on the 2017 event will be announced soon. 

We are pleased to introduce the 2017 Grand Rapids Business Journal 40 Under 40 Honorees!
