WHO IS THE TOP DISRUPTOR?

The Disruptors is allowing viewers to vote for the Top Disruptor of the season. Voting will be open for one week from the day a pitch is made by a start-up on the show.

Potential disruptors that receive the most votes will then be short-listed, with the top disruptor being chosen by Bruce Croxon, Amber Kanwar and BNN editorial staff. That start-up will then be spotlighted on the program and be given the opportunity to pitch Bruce Croxon’s investment company, Round 13.

Under his direction, he grew this early tech start-up from four to 600 employees into the marquee brand of online dating with more than 200 million users and nearly $100 million in revenue.

A familiar face to Canadian viewers, Croxon was a judge on the hit television program DRAGON’S DEN from 2011 to 2014.
