Pathao co-founder Hussain Elius and cartoonist Morshed Abdulla Al have made it onto the Forbes 30 under 30 list for Asia.

Picked from over 2,000 entries, heavily researched by a team of reporters and vetted by an A-list of judges, Forbes presented this year's edition of Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list on Tuesday.

Elius, 29, was listed in two categories— Consumer Technology and Big Money Startups, while 25-year-old Morshed was named in the category for Media, Marketing and Advertising 2019.

Elius, along with Shifat Adnan, co-founded Pathao, a leading ride-sharing, on-demand logistics and food delivery platform in Bangladesh.

Pathao’s motorbike and car-hailing service currently serves five million riders across five cities in Bangladesh, and in Kathmandu, Nepal.

Elius envisions Pathao as the country's "super app" and is inspired by one of his key investors, Indonesia's Go-Jek. Pathao has raised over US$12.8 million from four rounds of funding and is valued at over $100 million.

On the other hand, Morshed—who goes under the pen name Morshed Mishu—began transforming tragic and shocking images from wars into joyful art from the beginning of 2018.

With his art, the Bangladeshi cartoonist hoped to show how beautiful the world would be without violence or war.

After his work went viral, Mishu was awarded the “Global Happiness Challenge” project and he was hired as a cartoonist for newspapers across Bangladesh.

Currently, he is the assistant editor at Unmad, a Dhaka-based satire magazine, and the founder of Morshed Mishu's Illustration.

In its fourth year, the Forbes 30 Under 30 Asia list features a group of young leaders and visionaries spread across 23 countries in the region.

Representing 23 countries and territories in the Asia-Pacific region, some 300 entrepreneurs and game-changers stood out for the right reasons. From innovating in technology and disrupting age-old industries to demonstrating immense talent and dominating the world stage, this group of young stars shines in more ways than one.
