Breezin' Magazine

Breezin' Magazine announces the official list of finalists that will be featured in the 40 Under 40 article in the next issue. The magazine will launch on September 29, 2018.

Breezin’ Magazine is proud to announce its second issue that will launch on September 29, 2018. The entrepreneurial issue will feature a ‘Behind the Hustle’ look and view on event entertainment, entrepreneurship, and Tampa Bay business professionals. The magazine's most anticipated article highlights this year's  ’40 Under 40’ 2018 list, which recognizes young entrepreneurs, artists, and innovators, that have been proactive in the Tampa Bay Area.

Submissions for the nominations began early in April 2018 and the editorial team received hundreds of applications. The ’40 Under 40’ 2018 list is an exclusive list that only showcases some of the best entrepreneurs under 40 years of age that are young entrepreneurs, business professionals, and innovators. The publication accepted nominations and nominees could have either nominated themselves or someone they felt stood out in the surrounding community.
