Johannesburg – When it comes to knowing who’s who in the world of money makers, Forbes is definitely the way to go. The popular business magazine is known for its annual lists of money-makers in the business world, and entertainment industry. They count down everything from the highest paid DJ’s in the world, to the most influential people.

For many, making it onto one of these lists is a dream, and for five South Africans, that dream has just become a reality.

Nadav Ossendryver, 19, is the youngest of the five to make it onto the Forbes Africa 30 under 30 list, which counts down 30 entrepreneurs under the age of 30 who have achieved great success in their business ventures. 

Ossendyryver was only 15 when he created, Latest Sightings, an online wild-life spotting service for the Kruger National Park 

Also making the list is Siya Beyile, founder of The Threaded Man; designer, Inga Gubeka; social entrepreneur, Emmanuel Bonoko; and founder of The Lazy Makhoti (the lazy bride), Mogau Seshoene.
