Jason Jannati, Brad Eisenberg and Matej Harangozo of greeNEWit are among those in their 20s who see a job as a means for working toward a better world.

Each member of b's third 10 to Watch Under 30 edition has excelled in their respective fields: from the football player to the fundraiser to the businessman.

The Race for Innovation, a challenge to move from idea to business concept in four hours, will be held Tuesday, June 19, from 1 to 5 p.m., at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab's Kossiakoff Center.

greeNEWit is an organization founded to help our society build more sustainable communities and better economies through energy efficiency and conserving the use of natural resources.
