Last week Business in Vancouver (BIV) celebrated its 2018 list of Top 40 Under 40 business leaders. Thirty per cent are SFU alumni and of those, half graduated from the BBA or MBA programs in the SFU Beedie School of Business. The remainder earned SFU degrees in arts and/or science. Some have also completed SFU’s Coast Capital Savings Venture Connection program for early-stage ventures.

BIV selected its winners for their demonstrated excellence in business, judgement, leadership and community contribution.
