We kick off June with exciting news and a milestone as our founder and creative director, Felix Byaruhanga makes it on the Forbes list of 30 under 30 due to our clients and partners continued support and partnership with our subsidiary brand The Tribe UG. The 2021 “30 Under 30” list marks the seventh edition of the list featuring Africans under the age of 30 who are innovative entrepreneurs, tech geeks, sports stars and influential creatives leading a pandemic-hit Africa.
This year’s list marks a historic turn as many businesses and brands were adversely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The editorial team that curated the list sifted through countless nominations looking for resourcefulness and resilience in candidates, so crucial at this time in rebuilding and contributing to the African growth story.
Their extensive research was also vetted by an audit firm, SNG Grant Thornton, and a panel of judges and subject- matter experts on the continent.
“The FORBES AFRICA 30 Under 30 list is Forbes’ most coveted list of the year, and what makes this year’s compilation even more compelling is the fighting spirit of the candidates who made it through a turbulent year. They need to be honored for their tenacity as leaders charting a non-linear trajectory to success, and they are also representative of Africa’s greater talent trove that they will in turn help shine a light on,” says Renuka Methil, Managing Editor of FORBES AFRICA.
This is a milestone we want to celebrate with you as our partner/client/sponsor and collaborator because it’s through your belief in our brands (Skyline Media & The Tribe UG) that we made it through the turbulent year of 2020 and we continue to add value as we work together.
