16 Year Old Atlanta Student Becomes One of The Youngest Members of Forbes 30 Under 30 Class of 2019
Atlanta-based rideshare startup SAFETRIP continues tech domination as one of their youngest co-founders is inducted into Forbes prestigious 30 Under 30 Class of 2019. An accomplishment that’s not easy to achieve. In fact, according to Forbes Chief Sales Officer Jessica Sibley, it’s easier to get accepted into Harvard University. Langston is a 16 year old student at Dutchtown High School, located in Henry County.
Mostly known for serving as a quad player on Dutchtown’s Drumline, Langston works the nightshift at SAFETRIP during the weekdays. As the CIO, his responsibilities include implementing technologies and sourcing data for SAFETRIP’S growing staff of developers. Langston learned how to code at age 12 while creating an anonymous messaging app to contact his absent father. 4 years later, he’s now the youngest person selected by Forbes Enterprise Technology judges.
SAFETRIP is the world’s first healthcare rideshare app whose mission emphasizes making transportation affordable and accessible. SAFETRIP, which launched operations in January 2018, is a privately held corporation. The SAFETRIP User and Driver applications are available on Google Play and Apple App Store.
