Since 1991, Crain's Detroit Business has gathered 40 of the community's overachievers for a special salute. Past winners have started companies, found success at a young age, established businesses and made nonprofits stronger.

Nominations are now closed. The deadline to nominate a candidate for the 2020 class of 40 under 40 was Friday, May 15. After being nominated, candidates will receive an email and have until Friday, May 22 to complete a separate application.

Final decisions about who is selected for the 2020 class will be sent directly to candidates. 

*REMINDER: Candidates must be 39 years old or younger on September 7, 2020 to qualify. There is also a $99 fee – that includes a yearlong Membership to Crain's – to nominate.
