20 for the Next 20 Nominations

Submit nominations for the 2023 cohort below.
Hawaii Business Magazine is looking for 20 people whose talents, accomplishments and potential set them apart as emerging leaders of Hawaiʻi into the next two decades.
Past honorees have been described as energetic, innovative, entrepreneurial, talented, intelligent and charismatic leaders of tomorrow. These “People to Watch” may come from any field: business, public service, law, entrepreneurship, education, government service or elsewhere. However, elected politicians or people running for elective office will not be considered.
We receive hundreds of nominations each year for our honors. All nominations are considered but we only respond to nominations that make our short list. If you have any questions, please contact Steve Petranik, editor at Hawaii Business Magazine, at stevep@hawaiibusiness.com.
Deadline for 2024: Wednesday, November 22, 2023
