Assistant Minister for Innovation Wyatt Roy has been named in the inaugural Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list: 300 of the region’s top young leaders, entrepreneurs and game-changers in 10 different sectors.

Mr Roy said he was “incredibly humbled” to be selected.

“Some extraordinary achievers have been chosen, many of them trail-blazing entrepreneurs and tech company founders,” Mr Roy said.

“They’re young, bright and talented – and they’re making the world a better place via transformative disruption.

“With Australia’s economy transitioning, we are in an unprecedented position to seize these exciting opportunities; to become a regional – even a world – innovation leader.

“The Forbes listing acknowledges the Turnbull Government’s focus on driving our future prosperity through innovation and entrepreneurship.”
