Eight Alums Earn Spots on CNBC’s Disruptor 50


Hats off to eight Finovate alumni for winning spots on CNBC’s Disruptor 50.

2014 marks the second year of CNBC’s Disruptor 50 list. The selection credits companies for being “forward-thinking” and working to discover untapped markets en route to becoming “billion-dollar businesses.” Read more about CNBC’s selection methodology here.
CNBC’s David Spiegel wrote: 
“All of these companies entered traditional sectors and turned them upside down … It’s the power of a company to displace the established incumbents in its own industry, prompting a ripple effect throughout its economic ecosystem.”

See CNBCs inaugural Disruptor 50 here. The 2013 list included alums boku, CircleUp, Lending Club, and Wealthfront.
