The city by the sea lives, inhaling and exhaling with each surging wave. Much like the startup ecosystem,
sometimes the tides are low, sometimes they are raging, wild. The sea creates opportunity, is
a muse to an artist, a hope to a dream. It rocks the boat but also brings it to the shore. It’s
busy with responsibility, often overwhelmed, over-worked, yet blue with optimism.
It has drive.
021Disrupt is a product of this ambitious, bold, chaotic, unapologetic city and its people. Progress and innovation is never a straight line. It’s messy and chaotic and hard-earned. But it’s this city’s courage, resilience, and drive that allows it to overcome obstacles and hurdles. And it’s only when you decide to ﬁght through no matter what and keep moving forward, that true disruption can happen.
