Suncorp New Zealand executive joins global business people as a curator of the Disrupt 100

5 May, 2016

Suncorp New Zealand executive Dan Wilkinson will take part as a judge in the inaugural Disrupt 100, a bi-annual index of the world’s most disruptive businesses.

Mr Wilkinson will join some of the world’s leading entrepreneurs, investors and business people, including representatives from companies like Facebook, KPMG and Microsoft Accelerator, to consider which businesses have the most potential to influence, change or create new global markets.

“Disrupt 100’s focus on customer and customer behaviour gets to the heart of what is deeply fundamental to successful disruption,” says Mr Wilkinson, Executive Manager of Customer Technologies at Suncorp New Zealand.

“It aligns closely with the work we’re doing at Suncorp New Zealand to identify new opportunities to meet our customers’ needs.

“All companies, old and new, are at risk from disruption. Disrupt 100 provides its readers more than just a list of interesting businesses; it’s an in-depth analysis of who’s tapping into our changing world, understanding our changing needs and re-evaluating outdated models.”

Disrupt 100 aims to provide businesses with early insights of market disrupters, and provide greater public understanding of disruption caused by companies worldwide. The judges will select from a short-list of disruptive ventures sourced from over 500 influencers across the world.

Disrupt 100 is published by Tällt Ventures, global digital experts, researchers and startup founder. The first Disrupt 100 will be published in May 2016.
