Here are the top young business and professional men in Wales in 2020.
The men on the list come from a variety of backgrounds and industries, from food and leisure to tech start-ups. They are making their mark in business across the whole of Wales, but with an impact that goes well beyond.
This year the WalesOnline 35 Under 35 is sponsored by Helo Blod. Helo Blod is a free, fast and friendly Welsh translation and advice service that can help you use more Welsh in your business.
Eluned Morgan, Minister for International Relations and the Welsh Language, said: “Young entrepreneurs are the lifeblood and future of our economy and business in Wales, which is why we’re really happy to support the 70 entrepreneurs on their journey to success.
“Helo Blod is just one more step on our journey towards doubling the daily use of Welsh by 2050.
“Using just a little Cymraeg in your business means more than just words. It helps businesses spread their messages further, turns customers into regulars and brings communities together.
“Pob lwc to each and every one of you on your business journey – we hope Helo Blod can help you too.”
WalesOnline editor Paul Rowland said: “Since its launch in 2014 many of those who have made the lists, for both men and women, have gone on to achieve even greater success.
“The WalesOnline 35 Under 35 continues to be a great platform to showcase the rising stars in the Welsh economy and each year the number of entrants continues to grow, even with the challenges the economy has faced this year from the pandemic.”

Michael Pinocci, a 31-year-old former soldier from Ebbw Vale, launched the female sportswear firm V3 Apparel in 2015.
Mr Pinocci had been forced to leave the Army due to an injury and while suffering from depression he began reading motivation books. This led him to start V3 with his brother, Nicholas Pinocci and within five years it has grown into a global brand with one million followers on social media, sales in 90 countries, and sales partnerships with major retailers in six countries.
