In the finance category, Paul Allen (25) a partner within JP Morgan’s Technology investment banking division in London makes the cut.

She is joined in this category by Elizabeth Gilligan (29), co-founder of Material Evolution, a company that has developed “algorithmic concrete”, which is five times more durable than traditional concrete.

Jack Coulter (26), a Belfast-based abstract expressionist artist whose works are owned by the likes of Anne Hathaway, Paul McCartney and Patti Smith, is included in the arts and culture section.
