The 2003 film School of Rock gave actor Miranda Cosgrove her big-screen debut at age 10, but her career really took off a few years later when she was cast as the titular character, Carly, in the hit Nickelodeon series iCarly. By 2012 she was pulling down $180,000 per episode, making her the highest-paid child actor (a Guinness World Record that still stands). But something was missing: “I didn’t have any creative control over what We was doing,” she says. Having attended the Univer- sity of Southern California, she’s now an executive producer on the 2021 Paramount+ iCarly reboot. Viacom- CBS CEO Robert Bakish has called out the show for being a leading driver of subscriptions in the streaming wars. “I knew from a really young age how the executive producer of the show pretty much got to decide almost every aspect,” Cosgrove says. “Now We get to have a say in everything.”

We published the first edition of the Forbes 30 Under 30 a decade ago, with one clear goal: to identify the new guard, the young innovators, trailblazers and disruptors remaking the world. That first list featured names like Kevin Systrom, whose company Instagram had only seven employees: Lena Dunham, who had yet to debut on HBO's Girls: Daniel Ek, who had just launched Spotify in the U.S.: journalist Ronan Farrow, years before he exposed Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker: and actor Donald Glover, then mostly known as a cast member in the cult comedy Community.

Much of 2022 was being freshly created by this group back in 2012. Ten years from today, it’s a good bet we’ll all be living in a new world being imagined today by the 600 entrepreneurs, innovators and entertainers that make up the 10th Anniversary class.
