DisruptionHub announces Disruption North in partnership with Bruntwood SciTech

Disruption North will profile and celebrate innovation in Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle. Through a range of channels, Disruption North will profile and provide opportunities for the most exciting digital and technology focused business and stakeholders across these regions.

DisruptionHub the business intelligence platform and disruptive innovation magazine, has today announced a collaboration with Bruntwood SciTech to celebrate and help support the development of jobs, talent and ecosystems that Northern Cities need to grow and thrive on a global stage.

With over 17,000 subscribers DisruptionHub.com is an essential source of information and insight for some of Europe’s leading organisations. The annual Disruption Summit Europe attracts over 700 business leaders and the Disruption50 recognises the UK’s most disruptive businesses.

Rob Prevett, Cofounder and CEO of DisruptonHub says “After 5 years of running DisruptionHub I’ve met hundreds of exciting individuals and companies working in digital innovation. But I’m always frustrated at how little exposure companies outside of London receive when there’s such an abundance of talent, particularly in the North. The reality is there’s so much going on here and it’s a really great environment for growing digital businesses.”

Phil Kemp, CEO of Bruntwood SciTech, said: “Collaboration is at the heart of Bruntwood SciTech and partnering th DisruptionHub creates a real opportunity to celebrate and showcase some of the brilliant, market-disrupting innovators and technologies from across the North.

“There are great ideas forming, scaling and growing in many of the North’s key cities helping to contribute to the growth and strength of the UK tech economy.

“We’re always looking for ways to support our customers to tell their stories by identifying new platforms and opportunities for collaboration, network building, and cross sector communication, which Disruption North will certainly do”.

Disruption North will interview and share opinion from startups and established businesses based in the North. These companies can apply to achieve the status of “Northern Star” and be profiled across the Disruption North network and platform.

Rob Prevett, CEO and Co-Founder of DisruptionHub says “The aim is to highlight not just the plethora of talent in the North, but to demonstrate the value for businesses that find a home in these cities. We’re excited to be working in partnership with Bruntwood SciTech to deliver this vision. DisruptionHub is based in their Tech Hub in Leeds so we’ve experienced first-hand the value they bring in fostering an environment for the region’s most exciting digital and tech businesses to flourish.”

As part of this commitment to support businesses in the North, DisruptionHub is bringing an additional Disruption Summit to Leeds on 24th March 2020 focused on disruption and innovation in the Public Sector.

The success of the digital economy across the region is built on the support and investment from a wide range of organisations, with this in mind Disruption North is also opening a call for partnerships with organisations supporting the digital economy including: Investors, Local Government, Universities and the Tech Community as a whole.
