With its wide editorial lens, soaring digital success and iconic status in the lexicon of American media, Forbes is not just a business magazine and website, but a media brand that documents and promotes innovation, leadership, politics, entertainment, technology, culture, business and style.
Forbes’ mission is to deliver information on the people, ideas and technologies changing the world to our community of affluent business decision makers.
