In every generation, there are those who are marked by their vision, talent and drive; those who challenge the status quo and bring forth change. They are not just dreamers, they're doers—and it’s these creative visionaries and disruptive talents whom we define as Generation T (or Gen T for short).

Indonesia Tatler has evolved over the years and prides itself on continually maintaining its position as a trusted arbiter of modern society. As such, this year we want to introduce the Gen T initiative for the first time, with an inaugural list of the top 50 young, influential innovators who are shaping Indonesia. And we are proud to announce a brand new, dedicated section on the site for Generation T.

Here are four things to know about Generation T:

What is Generation T?

Generation T celebrates Indonesia’s brightest young talents with a comprehensive list of who's who in the region. This list complements our Tatler 500 List of Indonesia’s most-influential individuals, with a focus on the next generation.

The Generation T list comprises high achievers and promising individuals in any field, all of whom are below the age of 40 during the selection process. Generation T highlights personal and professional growth, empowers meaningful connections and celebrates achievement.

But Generation T is much more than a list—it’s also a platform for the communities to connect and collaborate with each other through enriching experiences and exclusive content on entrepreneurship, innovation, personal development and lifestyle.

A collaborative effort across the region, Generation T extends to Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and here in Indonesia. This is thus also a platform for the regional communities to connect and collaborate with each other, not only within Indonesia but also across Asia, through enriching experiences and content.


Who's on the list?

These people have a clear purpose and passion in life, making waves across all sectors, from art and retail to philanthropy and tech, and are open and proactive about sharing and learning. We have identified these names as playing an integral part in the dynamic future of Indonesia and are acknowledging their potential and contributions.

The list includes scions of some of Indonesia’s oldest families, as well as self-made entrepreneurs, gifted young artists, cutting-edge chefs, innovative inventors, bold-faced names in fashion as well as influencers. They are the next generation that is filled with potential. 

How do you make it onto the list?

The Generation T list will be curated annually by Indonesia Tatler, along with a panel list—dubbed the Tatler Tribe—of respected and accomplished people across industries. The Tatler Tribe will identify and celebrate the most promising individuals from the Generation T community.

While every Gen T lister will forever be part of the community, 50 names will graduate to become alumni in order to make way for new up-and-comers.

When will the 2017 Gen T list be announced?

Indonesia Tatler’s Generation T List 2017 will be unveiled in July 2017. Look forward to more from #GenerationT in the coming weeks. Stay tuned!
