Pitch Marketing 30 Under 30 List unveiled: Celebrates new talent & young entrepreneurs

The second edition of Pitch Marketing 30 Under 30, an initiative to pick the most talented individuals aged 30 years and under, from the Indian marketing ecosystem, has just been released. The list of winners features a wide variety of talent that is also representative of the diversity and domains across the industry. Mondelez India saw dual representation on the list in a competitive mix of brands like Google, Amazon, ITC Ltd, Nykaa, boAt, BYJU’s etc. 

The list has been released on the back of a challenging year for the industry, and therefore the talent that features are achievers who have really struck a chord in terms of their organisations’ business and been true innovators and game-changers. 

Pitch Marketing 30 under 30 is co-powered by Bobble AI, Laqshya Media Group and ABP News. 

While a good majority of the list includes talent between the ages of 27 and 30 years, the youngest industry star is 25 years of age. The list also sees representation from various brands and sectors from FMEG, FMCG, IT, Education, Smart Wearables etc. What is also heartening to note is the representation of women – 19 of the achievers on the list are female, which indicates that the industry will see a good number of women leaders emerge in the future.
