Stony Brook alumnus Jonathan Gottfried ’11 was recently named to the 2017 Forbes “30 Under 30” list in education for his work as a cofounder of Major League Hacking (MLH).
MLH is a student hackathon league that supports more than 200 weekend-long invention competitions each year, inspiring more than 65,000 future leaders around the world to learn and develop their computer science skills. According to Forbes, the organization has secured $1 million in funding to date.
Every year, Forbes honors “600 of the brightest young entrepreneurs, innovators and game changers” — 30 honorees per industry category. This year’s class of honorees was vetted and selected by a network of successful industry legends and “30 Under 30” alumni. Acceptance rate was less than 4 percent.
