About Us

A Start-Up Community founded by Entrepreneurs

Start-Up Disruptors was founded by Becky Lodge.

As a female entrepreneur starting her own businesses in 2015, she was horrified to find that lots of small business owners were being ‘ripped off’ by unscrupulous suppliers – so decided to do something about it.

Having been to lots of other local events, she decided that there wasn’t one that met the unique requirements of those developing their ideas (before taking them to market), or those in the early stages of starting their own businesses and scaling up. So StartUp Disruptors was formed by 9 people in a pub.

The monthly format of meeting in a pub, to discuss business issues and problems, has grown from nine people to well over 1,000 community members online on the Meetup platform too.

Our group concentrates on business growth, as well as helping you become better connected. We have lots of success stories and case studies and in 2018, we held our first Awards ceremony which was sponsored by Uber and Basepoint Business Centres.

Our aim is to add amazing value and help you move away from the kitchen table to drive your business onwards and upwards to the stars!
