Forbes magazine has decided not to go forward with a Bermuda retreat for some of its “30 under 30” entrepreneurs, reports Archie Bland of The Guardian.
Bland reports, “But within hours of the Guardian’s inquiry on Monday, a spokesperson for the magazine said it was ‘not proceeding with this initiative’. They claimed that the trip had been intended to ‘create a protocol that could allow us to come together and build community in a safe way that also serves as a model for the world’.
