About Disruptive Technologists, Inc.® – a STEM not for profit

The Disruptive Technologists, Inc. ® Mission

Disruptive Technologists is a STEM nonprofit with a mission to educate, inspire, and empower a diverse community of tech disrupters that includes women, minorities, the disabled, and people of all backgrounds.

We provide support to those actively pursuing cutting-edge innovation. We also offer a glimpse into the thinking and methods of those who are considering their own ventures and access to those who are already firmly established in technical fields.  Join in on live and virtual events, think tank talks, newsletters, networking, and other programs that speak to disruption over a range of markets and industries.

“I am impressed with the caliber and wide diversity of true technology experts that Lauren consistently pulls together for Disruptive Technologists events to educate and inspire both a local and global audiences. Even as someone working at a top tech company, I myself have learned and gained very interesting insights from the panel discussions and think tank dinners. As New York and surrounding communities aspire to invest deeper in technology, a resource like Disruptive Technologists is a phenomenal asset to continue inspiring the next generation.”

Rachel Loui, International Growth for US Customers, Head of Business & Industrial Markets, Google

Who Are Disruptive Technologists?

Tech is blowing up in New York City thanks to a thriving culture of entrepreneurship that is disrupting the way people live and work. At the forefront are a growing group of individuals whose ideas and thoughts fall outside the mainstream. They are the few aggressively pushing the boundaries of technology innovation.

“Influential people are never satisfied with the status quo. They’re the ones who constantly ask, ‘What if?’ and ‘Why not?’ They’re not afraid to challenge conventional wisdom and they don’t disrupt things for the sake of being disruptive; they do it to make things better.” 

Travis Bradberry

These Disruptive Technologists are the game-changers, the out-of-the-box thinkers, the hackers, the iconoclasts, the students, and the inventors. Any one of which with the potential to create the Next Big Thing in technology. Today, many of the most intriguing and promising of these individuals live and work in New York City – not Silicon Valley. They, along with those who finance and employ them, are the reason Silicon Alley has moved into the number 2 VC and Angel funding spot.

Looking for the Disruptors?

People are eager to understand what makes successful innovators tick. They want to emulate them, learn from them, invest in them, and know all the tricks and tips they have to offer. As experts and investors are always looking for the next Elon Musk, everyone with a dream is interested in learning more to jump-start their own ideas. Being able to learn about these future-forward thinkers – those who create new technologies for non-wrinkling pants and virtual basketball played at hoops throughout NYC – is a powerful tool for the next-gen of innovators.

Disruptive Technologists, Inc.® is where you can come to get a fascinating glimpse into the lives, thinking, and methods of some of these very people who have created that change in the world as well as those on the verge of major disruption. We are a STEM nonprofit driving change for women and people of all backgrounds to take their places at the forefront of technology today and become the next great disruptive technologist.
