The network will build special coverage around this CNBC exclusive list with the complete rankings being revealed, on-air and online Tuesday, June 17th.
The CNBC Disruptor 50 was chosen from more than 500 companies nominated by venture capital firms and individual VCs. The companies were ranked based on a proprietary blend of quantitative and qualitative inputs, as well as expertise from industry analysts and CNBC’s beat reporters and editorial staff. Throughout the week, CNBC’s Julia Boorstin will lead CNBC’s on-air coverage. CNBC’s "Squawk Box" (M-F, 6AM-9AM ET), "Squawk Alley" (M-F, 11AM-12PM ET) and "Mad Money w/ Jim Cramer" (M-F, 6PM-7PM ET) will feature the companies on the list throughout the week, starting with a look back at 2013’s biggest success stories on Monday, ahead of the big reveal on Tuesday. Tune-in to find out which disruptors are posing the biggest threat to the public giants, and changing everything we think we know about business today.
CNBC.com will have a special report, disruptor50.cnbc.com, which will include in-depth profiles of the 50 companies, an explanation of CNBC’s ranking methodology and a dynamic line-up of stories focused on innovation and how investors can profit from disruptive trends.
