Jamie Chadwick Is Racing Toward Formula One And Paving The Way For Other Women In The Sport | Forbes

British racing driver Jamie Chadwick is breaking the speed limit--and gender barriers. Chadwick has captured all three of the female W Series championships since its inaugural season in 2019, and become the first woman to win a British GT Championship and a BRDC British Formula 3 race. In December, she signed with Andretti Autosport to race in the Indy NXT Championship--making her the first woman driver in more than a decade to race in Indycar's premier feeder league. Chadwick has her GPS set on global domination: "I want to have the ultimate amount of success myself. I want to make Formula One," she tells Forbes. "But my legacy, I want to inspire the next generation of women to get involved in the sport."

Even a difficult year marred by the ongoing war in Ukraine, a pressing energy crisis, rocketing inflation and a barrage of natural disasters couldn’t slow down Europe’s youngest visionary leaders. In a historically tough environment, the 300 founders and entrepreneurs featured on our 2023 Forbes Under 30 Europe list raised more than $3 billion in capital—$1 billion more than our 2022 class. Europe's brightest founders are putting the cash to work, building bold companies that are out to combat climate change, fight fraud, reinvent the banking industry and better treat infections.

To compile our eighth annual list, Forbes writers and editors combed through thousands of online submissions, and tapped industry experts and list alumni for recommendations. Candidates were evaluated by Forbes staff and a panel of independent, expert judges (including beauty entrepreneur and Bliss Spa founder Marcia Kilgore, musician Joy Crookes and Zepz, formerly WorldRemit, founder Ismail Ahmed) on a variety of factors, including (but not limited to) funding, revenue, social impact, scale, inventiveness and potential. All final listers must have been 29 or younger as of March 7, 2023.
