Young Global Leaders


What do Venezuela's opposition leader María Corina Machado, Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, former SAP board member Shai Agassi and Crown Prince Haakon of Norway have in common?

They are/were all Young Global Leaders (YGL) of the World Economic Forum. Roland Berger Strategy Consultants have actively supported this network for over four years.

A powerful network

The 43-year-old Machado is a remarkable woman whose work will have a lasting impact on her country. She and around 750 other truly outstanding individuals like her make up the "Young Global Leaders". Seven years after it was founded at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, the Young Global Leaders (YGL) have established themselves as a powerful network, working to bring about change for a better world.

Prominent members of the circle include Shai Agassi, software engineer and founder/CEO of Better Place, Crown Prince Haakon of Norway, Jimmy Wales, the founder of Wikipedia, or John Hope Bryant, Vice-Chairman of the US President's Council on Financial Literacy.

This distinguished group of role models has now been honored with a publication of their own – the first-ever special edition of our think: act client magazine.
