Meet Inc.'s Rising Stars of 2019. They've kicked their companies into high gear--and they're younger than 30. They are only getting started but have built inspiring entrepreneurial careers--from Modern Fertility’s effort to help families with infertility issues to CapWay’s pitch for better serving the underbanked and Afresh’s call to reduce supermarket food waste. Special thanks to our 2019 judges: Tina Sharkey, co-founder and CEO of e-commerce startup Brandless; Michael Dubin, co-founder and CEO of Dollar Shave Club; Pooneh Mohajer, co-founder and CEO of lifestyle brand Tokidoki; and Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and investor at Pivotal Ventures; and Laura Behrens Wu, co-founder and CEO of enterprise shipping platform Shippo, who herself was an Inc. Rising Star honoree in 2017.
