Each year, Forbes magazine publishes its “30 Under 30” list to highlight “600 of the brightest young entrepreneurs, breakout talents and change agents in 20 different sectors.” In 2016, the magazine honored seven of our educational program alumni as part of its “Law & Policy” list. If you’re doing the math, that means more than 20 percent of the of the “Law & Policy” honorees participated in at least one Charles Koch Institute educational program.
