There’s a lot of negative news out there these days. That’s why, more than ever, the Business Observer is looking forward to our 40 Under 40 issue this year.

The 40 Under 40 issue is our chance to spotlight young leaders in the area who dream big and are doing big things — even in the pandemic.

We’re looking for nominations for the issue now, so please tell us about that executive, entrepreneur, leader or professional who really impresses you. And if you want to nominate yourself, we welcome that, too. Just tell us why you or the person you’re nominating is a stand out.

Winners must be based in our coverage area, which includes Pasco, Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk, Manatee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee and Collier counties. Nominees also must be under the age of 40 as of Oct. 10. The issue is open to people in any field and industry.

To submit a nomination, please visit and fill out our online submission form. You will be asked to include the nominee’s city, age, company and title along with your contact information and their contact information. Please be able to describe in 300 words or less why this nominee should be in the Business Observer’s 40 Under 40 issue.

The deadline for nominations is July 31.

If you have any questions, please email Business Observer Managing Editor Mark Gordon at [email protected]

We can’t wait to celebrate the young professionals who make our region a great place to live and work.
