Local startup accelerator gener8tor is proud and excited to announce that Anurag Garg, recent alum of the three-month, mentorship-driven program has been announced one of Forbes’ 30 Under 30 in the Manufacturing and Industry Space.

Forbes’ 2017 class, which was announced January 3rd boasts 600 individuals whom Forbes considers “the most definitive gathering of today’s leading young change-makers and innovators in the U.S.” Across the 20 categories including Education, Hollywood & Entertainment, Venture Capital, and Art & Style, Garg was picked from a pool of more than 15,000 nominees.

Anurag is CEO and Co-founder of DATTUS (, an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) company that offers the simplest, fastest, and most cost-effective way to make industrial machines “smart”. DATTUS provides facilities and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with hardware to monitor the efficiency and reliability of their machines, as well as a software / data analytics platform to predict machine performance, improve efficiencies, and drive growth through customer engagement. DATTUS today serves some of the biggest names in manufacturing and industry across two continents.

Garg says, “I’m excited and honored to be included in this list alongside some amazing leaders. This couldn’t have happened without the backing of an incredible team and mentors who have supported DATTUS and me personally on this journey!”

“It’s natural for Anurag to be featured on that list,” said Abby Taubner of gener8tor. “He has the type of hustle that more entrepreneurs would be better off with. He was so inspiring to work with during our program, and I’m so excited to see the ways he’ll continue to change the industry.”

After going through the gener8tor program in Madison last spring, Anurag raised a $1.7M round led by CSA Partners out of Milwaukee.
