As per Forbes, "To find the region’s most promising young talent, we scanned the Middle East markets for outstanding young achievers, as well as collecting online nominations, where applicants could put themselves or someone else forward for consideration. We initially received over 300 applications. The Forbes Middle East research and editorial teams then evaluated all candidates, conducting two rounds of assessments to shortlist 60 candidates. We then turned to our external judges, who are all experts in their respective fields. They conducted their own research, deliberated the criteria, and shared their insights on who they thought should make the final list."
The 2021 list features 38 individuals from 20 nationalities. The impact category has the highest number of entries with seven, followed by sport with six, and creative with five. The e-commerce, finance, and technology categories have four entries each.
