Get Your 40Under40 Nominations In Now! Deadline June 23rd, 2021.

We are accepting nominations for the 2021 Hagerty Traverse City Business News’ 40Under40!


Now in its 15th year, this celebration recognizes individuals in Grand Traverse, Leelanau, Benzie and Kalkaska counties – under the age of 40 – who are movers and shakers, and impacting their community, the region and the economy. If you fit this description, or know someone who does, complete the form below.

Hint: While being a good parent, spouse and neighbor is certainly commendable, your nominees will be best served if you focus on their exemplary leadership within their industry, the economic impact their work or business has on the region, and the contributions they make in terms of community service and putting this region on the proverbial map – overall, but especially within the last year.
