2024 A100 List

Asian Pacific leaders are redefining today and shaping tomorrow. Asian Pacific-led creativity continued to break records in entertainment, with the most-watched Netflix show of 2023 (The Night Agent), the most-watched Disney+ film premiere of 2023 (Elemental), the most-watched FX premiere ever on Hulu (Shōgun), the first Asian to win “Male Artist of the Year” at the People’s Choice Awards (Jungkook), the most-watched YouTube Shorts creator of 2023 (Alan Chikin Chow), and the first Asian-created and led television show to win an Emmy for Best Limited or Anthology Series (Beef). In sports, A100 and New Gold honorees represent the world’s highest-paid athlete (Shohei Ohtani), the first Asian player to score 100 Premier League goals (Heung-Min Son), the first high schooler drafted number one overall to the NWSL (Alyssa Thompson), and the most-viewed Super Bowl Halftime Show prior to 2024 (choreographed by Parris Goebel). 

 

Asian Pacific leaders are also driving the most important technologies and policies that will determine the future, founding 42% of the IPO’d companies in the United States in the last two years. A100 honorees sit at the forefront of the AI revolution, including “Godmother of AI” Dr. Fei-Fei Li and executives at the most dominant AI players (e.g., AMD, Google Cloud, NVIDIA, Open AI, Salesforce AI, Scale AI). A100 honorees also lead the most crucial organizations ensuring that future technologies balance fundamental rights, including the Human Rights Watch, the National Resources Defense Council, and the White House Correspondents’ Association.
