Discover Our Impact: Innovators United
The Startup Disrupt was founded in 2020 and is dedicated to help business and tech innovators to change the ‘old’ way of thinking in industries, products, and services and help to build fast growing and sustainable companies.
We build a global marketplace for startups.
We see ourselves as a forward-looking group of passionate startup enthusiasts who want to help a new generation of startup founders, engineers, developers, tech innovators, and others to succeed.
CEO, Startup Disrupt
We’re not happy about status quo. That doesn’t mean that we moan and complain about everything around us like annoyed teenagers. Quite the opposite. We’re super excited about the talent, activity, and potential we see around us every day. The whole world is changing, with disruptive technologies, new approaches to state organisations and educations, and the shaking up of old institutions. The Czech Republic, celebrating its 100 years recently as well as 30 years since the liberation from Communism, has had a very tumultuous century. We’ve been thrown around by various despotic regimes and went through a lot of oppression.
Now is our time to shine. We have unprecedented talent, a vibrant international community, world-class researchers, and great ideas. Let’s disrupt our own society and move to the next level, as well as take this infectious entrepreneurial, non-conventional spirit abroad.
That’s our mission – to help startups connect, support each other and grow together. We encourage and actively support innovation and don’t see ‘disruption’ as a bad word; we see it as a mechanism for a better future.
