Business School alumnus in Forbes 30 under 30

Congratulations to Sam Ryan (Accounting and Finance, 2014) for his inclusion in Forbes 30 under 30, Europe 2022.

Sam is included in the Forbes technology category, of the annual Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe list, which illustrates the power of young entrepreneurs and leaders have to transform business and society.

“This year’s class is boldly redefining 10 industries across nearly 30 countries. They are the result of thousands of international nominations and stamps of approval from expert judges, and join a community of young entrepreneurs and game-changers including singer-songwriter Adele, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek, actress Cynthia Erivo and athlete Marcus Rashford.”

“The 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe Technology honorees offer a vision of not only what Europe is, but what it has the potential to become. In a year filled with major challenges for Europe, most notably the Russian invasion of Ukraine resulting in the ongoing war between the two largest countries on the continent, there’s a group of individuals whose vision, tenacity and technological know-how serve as a ray of hope for building a more sustainable, economically developed and digitally advanced society.”

They have “earned their place on the coveted list thanks to a wide array of entrepreneurial endeavors, ranging from payroll processing firms and DevOps automation platforms to neurotechnology startups and even mobile apps for Christian prayers.”

Sam Ryan exited his first business, JumpIn to Addison Lee in 2014, while still at the University of Leeds, and is now co-founder and CEO of Zeelo, a smart bus platform for community and school runs, leading a team of over 160 people across 4 countries.
