What does it mean to be hot? These days innovators, risk-takers, and company builders are the ones generating heat -- and Asia is full of them. Fortune scoured the continent for the most buzzed-about businesspeople. Our quest turned up folks like Jennifer Li, the "Sheryl Sandberg of China," who helped build search engine Baidu, and the young founders of Flipkart, who are disrupting Indian retail.

Sareen, an ex-army captain who created a special pink tire for breast cancer awareness, it won't be stodgy for long.
