Top 10 Business Leaders Under 40

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 12, 2014


What does it take to disrupt, to lead, to innovate? For Jan Koum it was coming up with a texting app so popular that Facebook had to have it—for $19 billion. For Elizabeth Holmes it was a childhood fear of getting her blood drawn. For Andriy Kobolyev, CEO of Ukrainian gas giant Naftogaz, it’s the fine art of persuading Gazprom to keep the gas flowing—while getting his countrymen to stop sleeping with their windows open.

Welcome to our 2014 40 under 40, our list of the most powerful, influential, important people in business under 40. You’ll see plenty of household names here—Mark Zuckerberg, Brian Chesky, Marissa Mayer—but you’ll also see plenty of new faces. (One thing you won’t see are many repeats. With very few exceptions, once someone’s been on once, we consider them “in the club” and move them off to make room for fresh discoveries.) What we look for: power, influence, leverage, scale, and ideas that disrupt.

Many names on the list are of course in the tech sector, but they’re also in finance, fashion, film, real estate, and even eggless mayonnaise. This year there are a surprising number of legacies, perhaps reflecting how hard it is to get ahead in today’s economy without the right connections (though for a true rags-to-riches tale, look no further than Koum). One thing they have in common: They don’t like limits, and they don’t like being told no.

1. Travis Kalanick & Brian Chesky


Age 38, 33
Title Co-founder and CEO
Company Uber / Airbnb

They’re revolutionizing two very different industries, but this year was the year that Kalanick and Chesky became the figureheads for the ongoing clash between the great potential of the Internet economy and the rules and regulations of the old economy. In the Internet economy, the web can connect hundreds of millions of us to powerful platforms and networks where we can help ourselves to extra inventory, whether it’s a spare bedroom in someone’s house or a driver-for-hire idling in between jobs.

In the real world economy, that ability can collide with entrenched interest groups and decades-old re Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 21, 2014


WASHINGTON (AP) — The Secret Service chief has stepped-up security outside the White House after a man with a knife who jumped the fence made it into the presidential residence before being apprehended, officials said Saturday.

President Barack Obama insisted he still has confidence in the beleaguered agency’s ability to protect him and his family.

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson ordered enhanced officer patrols and surveillance along the North Fence of the compound just after the incident on Friday evening, which triggered a rare evacuation of the White House as well as renewed scrutiny of the Secret Service.

Can Obama wage war without consent of Congress?

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on September 13, 2014

barack-obamaWASHINGTON (AP) — On the cusp of intensified airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, President Barack Obama is using the legal grounding of the congressional authorizations President George W. Bush relied on more than a decade ago to go to war. But Obama has made no effort to ask Congress to explicitly authorize his own conflict.

The White House said again Friday that Bush-era congressional authorizations for the war on al-Qaida and the Iraq invasion give Obama authority to act without new approval by Congress under the 1973 War Powers Act. That law, passed during the Vietnam War, serves as a constitutional check on presidential power to declare war without congressional consent. It requires presidents to notify Congress within 48 hours of military action and limits the use of military forces to no more than 60 days unless Congress authorizes force or declares war.
