Coming into the first week of the new year, Forbes couldn't wait to drop their list of the hottest young talents under the age of 30. With an initial list of 15,000 that was eventually cut down to 600, the finalists comprise the top men and women across fields, featuring everything from young entrepreneurs to creative leaders and our favorite stars.

Forbes made it a little easier and broke the list down into categories, from music and media, to art and style, along with science and healthcare. While youth has long been seen as a disadvantage, the tech age has completely trumped this idea and put young entrepreneurs in the lead for success.

As we begin to reel in jealousy at the fact we haven't made it on the list this year (maybe next year?), a few standout names include the likes of A$AP Rocky, Fetty Wap, Star Wars: The Force Awakens actor John Boyega, jewelry designer Delfina Delettrez and NBA star Stephen Curry.

With so many names on the list, make sure you head over to Forbes to check out the full selection.

Also, take a look at some of the most bankable stars according to Forbes.
