Welcome to our annual 40 Under 40 feature. Since 1988, Crain’s New York Business has been celebrating the 40 Under 40—an annual list of the most accomplished New York City-based business professionals under 40 years old.

To be eligible, a nominee must be working in the New York metro area and be 39 years old or younger as of Nov. 4, 2024. 

The deadline to nominate an individual for 40 Under 40 is June 14, 2024 at 11:59 p.m. EST.

How to nominate: 

  • To get started, click the application link and sign into your account. If you do not have an account, you will be asked to create one before you can proceed with the nomination form. We recommend using Chrome or Firefox web browsers to complete your application. Note, your CrainsNewYork.com account is separate from an account you create for 40 Under 40 or any other Crain's New York Business recognition program.
  • To submit someone for consideration, there is a nomination fee of $199, which must be paid before the nomination can be formally submitted. The nomination fee ensures that your nominee will be considered for inclusion in the final published story; it does not ensure your nominee will automatically be included.

Honoree notification: 40 Under 40 honorees will be notified by phone or email approximately 5 weeks before publication. Please note that we do not notify all applicants, only those we have chosen to include.
