Actionable insights from the most disruptive business minds

Every year, CNBC selects and ranks the top 50 private companies that are transforming the economy and disrupting their industry.  This year-long program, known as the Disruptor 50, includes the annual ranking, robust cross-platform coverage, and events.

The Disruptor 50 annual celebration honors the 2018 companies included on the list and their leadership.  The program features recognition of 2018 winners, an interview with a “mentor” figure for the entrepreneurs in attendance, and ample networking time over cocktails.
