30 Under 30 Class of 2018 | Policy Founder Jen Ugland - POLICY Handbags

Charlotte is a boomtown, growing and changing daily.

In the middle of it all, young people are leaving their marks on the city like never before.

For the third time, Charlotte Agenda set out to recognize 30 leaders age 30 or younger who are impacting the city they live in. It wasn’t hard to find them. Winnowing the list down to 30 — that was the hard part.

This year’s impressive class runs the gamut — encompassing startup founders, politicos, fitness moguls, builders and business people.
