Join us for a fun evening of networking and hors d'oeuvres, while we honor the top 40 North Texas men and women in business who represent innovation and excellence in their fields--all under the age of 40. These dynamic leaders have shaped our community in ways that have made North Texas a better place to live and do business. 

Each member of this impressive class will be called on stage to accept their award in front of peers, friends and family. Honorees will also be profiled in a special section inserted in the March 23 issue of the Dallas Business Journal.
