Kenny and Burphy listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2022

Kenny & Burphy Forbes 30 Under 30 Europe 2022

Great news to start the month. Forbes 30 under 30 Europe lists Amos Alumni, Kenny Imafidon and Burphy Zumu under the category of Social Impact.

The list recognises the top 30 most impactful entrepreneurs under the age of 30 in Europe. It shows the power young leaders have to transform business and society.

Both Kenny and Burphy are humbled to be named on the list. Kenny commented on social media, “It’s always a blessing to be recognised for the work that we do. Although we don’t do it for the recognition, but to make an impact.” Burphy echoed his sentiments, “It is truly a blessing to be recognised in such a manner. Even more so in the month that marks an important anniversary for us!”

Burphy and Kenny, along with Leonie Bellio founded ClearView Research in May 2015. The company specialises in working with groups that are usually underrepresented in research.

Here at The AMOS Bursary, we have first-hand experience of the social impact of these two young men from our 2010 and 2012 cohorts. They both serve as “big brothers” to our younger students, motivating and supporting them on their journeys. They are also regular speakers on the AMOS Excellence Programme, offering insights from their personal experiences. Most recently they have taken the AMOS Bursary value of community spirit to the next level, as ClearView Research has become one of our corporate partners.

Forbes says, “The 30 Under 30 offers an annual opportunity to embrace the optimism, inventiveness and boldness of youth.” We say they couldn’t have picked two better people to represent those values than Burphy Zumu and Kenny Imafidon.
