Here's a little project I could use your help on: 30_30, a list I'm compiling of 30 people under the age of 30 who are making important contributions to the innovation economy here in New England.

They can hail from any field, whether life sciences or cleantech or financial services or social media. They can work in a tiny start-up or a big, publicly-traded company. They can be founders, programmers, bloggers, or lab techs. They can be students or working stiffs.

The single criteria I'll use to put together the list: what have they done to make their organization and our region more innovative? (And have they not yet hit their 30th birthday?)

There are two ways to nominate people: you can e-mail me using the form at right, or by clicking on my name (where it says "About the blogger"), and including "30_30" in the subject line. Or you can post a comment below.

No need to write a long essay about your nominee's achievements thus far a few lines will suffice, along with their name, title, and company. And if you are sending your nominee via e-mail, please include the nominee's e-mail address, too. 

I'd love to hear from you by next Friday, April 2nd. Thanks for helping!
