The 40 Under 40 recognizes young professionals who have been especially successful throughout the past year in the fields of technology, real estate, banking, law, academia, cleantech, nonprofits, and government.

At the young age of 29, Anthony Goldbloom is the acts as the CEO of Kaggle Inc., a platform for data science competitions. Just months after winning the 7th Founder Showcase in 2011, Kaggle raised an $11m round led by Index Ventures and Khosla Ventures. They have since gone on to build a platform of 65,000 data scientists competing to solve the world’s most difficult problems. Kaggle’s community of scientists has worked with NASA, helped advance AIDS research, and is currently working with GE, as they aim to revolutionize flight.

A San Francisco native, Goldbloom attended the University of Melbourne, where he earned a degree in Communication.
