TORONTO, Nov. 29, 2023 – GoBolt Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Mark Ang was named to Forbes’ 13th annual Under 30 List for the Class of 2024, a prestigious list recognizing 600 leaders from North America, within 20 different industries. Ang was honored among the Manufacturing & Industry leaders for his efforts to make the logistics industry more sustainable.
“Starting GoBolt with Heindrik Bernabe back in 2017 has been a roller coaster of emotions filled with very high highs and very low lows,” said Ang. “Moments like this give you pause to reflect on just how far you’ve come and also how far you have left to go. I am humbled to be recognized alongside my fellow honorees who are making significant contributions and driving meaningful change through their entrepreneurial efforts.”
GoBolt is a technology company building the largest sustainable supply chain network that partners with merchants to deliver a complete end-to-end customer experience. Ang is strategically positioning GoBolt as a pioneering force in the next generation of logistics, diverging from the conventional path of emissions-heavy delivery vehicles and operations. Focused on sustainability, Ang is ushering in a new era of logistics by building one of North America’s largest EV fleets and committing to provide carbon-neutral deliveries by the end of this year. By embracing technology and building a proprietary suite of warehouse and transportation management systems, Ang and Bernabe aim to redefine third-party logistics. Their approach has attracted global retail partners such as IKEA, ZARA, Rove Concepts, and Frank And Oak, solidifying GoBolt’s impact on the industry.
“This is one of the most diverse and ambitious Under 30 classes to-date, and particularly in terms of the scope of their work and impact of their leadership,” said Kristin Stoller, Senior Editor, Forbes Under 30, in a press release. “The large majority are founders or cofounders of a company, but creators and performers are also making their mark as they build their brands beyond traditional artistic scopes.”
According to Forbes, “The Class of 2024 has raised $3.6 billion in fundraising and the celebrities, musicians and creators on the list captured a combined 780M+ social media following. Gen Z gained a stronger presence on this year’s list, making up 33% of the list, up from 22% in 2023.” Fellow honorees include leaders in art and style, media, entertainment, education, science, enterprise tech, healthcare, energy, sports, consumer tech, music, finance, food and drink, social impact, manufacturing and industry, venture capital, marketing and advertising, retail and e-commerce, games, and social media.
