Alumni Winners in Cornwall’s 30 Under 30

Cornwall’s 30 under 30 for 2020 have been announced. Congratulations to the Falmouth alumni who were well represented in the list.

The annual awards celebrate Cornwall’s brightest young business talent and were organised by Cornwall Chamber of Commerce in partnership with Business Cornwall magazine, networking group The Hub and sponsor, Truro and Penwith College.

Cornwall Chamber CEO, Kim Conchie, said: “It was, yet again, a joy to read through the entries and to revel in the passion and expertise which people apply to their jobs as a fundamental aspect of their lives.
