The Rochester Business Journal will celebrate the 26th annual Forty Under 40 awards program in 2020. We have celebrated 1,000 outstanding young professionals with this award, and will add another 40 honorees to this exclusive group. This event recognizes and brings together the individuals who will be the future leaders of Rochester. These individuals are not only achieving success in their careers but giving back in meaningful ways to the Rochester community. If you know an outstanding leader who is younger than 40 years old, nominate them today.

The Rochester Business Journal is COVID conscious and will be making educated decisions on whether events are virtual or in-person per CDC recommendations and state and county guidance. For now, all events for 2020 are moving forward as virtual but as soon as we can come back together in person to celebrate excellence we look forward to doing so.
