Fortune’s 40 Under 40: A List of List-Makers Toasting the Ambitious with Paper Pads

Fortune's 40 Under 40 Gift Bag

Fortune’s “40 Under 40” names the most influential, cream of the crop doers and leaders in business—all under 40 years old. We’re inspired by this year’s list, who are moguls in their respected fields and ranging in honorees as young as 22 years old.

The list touts influential entrepreneurs and corporate officers like Apple Music’s Head of Global Marketing, Bozoma Saint John, and Google’s VP of Virtual Reality, Clay Bavor, while also spotlighting stars like Hamilton founding father Lin-Manuel Miranda and Late Late Show’s host and “Carpool Karaoke” King James Corden. Since a handful of the Knock Knock team are avid theSkimm readers, we were excited to see theSkimm founders Carly Zakin and Danielle Weisberg on the list too!

Fortune celebrated the honorees at Automattic in San Francisco, whose founder and CEO Matt Mullenweg, made number 20 on the list. We would like to thank Matt for Automattic’s existence, since it’s the parent company of WordPress and without it, you wouldn’t be reading any of this right now.

All VIP attendees and honorees received Knock Knock’s Action Items! Pad, the go-to pad for urgent tasks that need to be completed like, yesterday!
