What Is 30 Under Thirty?

Vet Show 30 Under Thirty (VS30) is the only dedicated initiative recognising talent (under 30) in the veterinary industry. Founded by Pioneer Veterinary Products (that’s us), and the London Vet Show, we’re on the hunt to find pioneers when it comes to the veterinary industry. VS30 is all about supporting extraordinary individuals in their careers, giving them access to unique benefits and thought leadership, as well as giving them a platform for industry acknowledgement.

Since VS30's Launch in 2022, we've seen a fantastic cohort of incredible individuals who are already making a big impact in the veterinary industry. We've been following these inspirational leaders in their careers, as well as working with them to support their efforts and bring new products and services to market that further drive the industry forward. 

Hear From Molly Fiander
Member of the 2022 VS30 Cohort

"Being a part of the first ever 30 Under Thirty cohort has been an absolute blast! I've had a great time, met incredible people, forged valuable connections, and had the privilege of collaborating with Pioneer Veterinary Products who have shown unwavering support for my new venture; Management For Locums."

"It's funny how things work out sometimes—I was nominated last year by someone, and I'm truly grateful for that recognition. But I didn't know and I didn't want to leave it to chance, so I took matters into my own hands and nominated myself. And you know what? I encourage everyone to do the same—to back themselves and believe in the passion they possess and the impact they're making. Let's celebrate our own success and make waves in the industry we love!"
