Belarusians Eugene Nevgen and Sergey Gonchar into Forbes 30 under 30 list

Founders of MSQRD Eugene Nevgen and Sergey Gonchar have entered Forbes 30 under 30 list of the best young entrepreneurs in the world. 

Each year, the world's leading business magazine conducts a large-scale study the most promising entrepreneurial skills in various sectors - 30 Under 30. In each of 20 categories, journalists together with experts choose thirty entrepreneurs who have made a breakthrough in their field.

Belarusians names appear in the Consumer Tech category.

MSQRD was released at the beginning of 2016. In March, the IT information space exploded with the news that Facebook was buying MSQRD. Mark Zuckerberg personally shared this news in a blog.

Later, Belarusians said that a tremendous team work stood behind all their achievements. Sometimes, without breaks for sleep and dinner.

Here is what FORBES writes about the guys:

When Facebook wanted to catch up with Snapchat, it turned to two entrepreneurs from Belarus. Nevgen and Gonchar built MSQRD, an app that adds crazy filters to your selfies. After the app caught on in the U.S., Facebook bought MSQRD for an undisclosed amount in March 2016. Since then, both cofounders have been working for Facebook in London.
