What we're about

Start-Up Disruptors is a business networking and support community that was born in Portsmouth in 2016. We now have groups in Southampton, Portsmouth and Chichester and grew from 9 people meeting in a pub to over 1000+ online small business owners in our Facebook group.

The group was founded by Becky Lodge and Laura Kenward, who had grown tired of attending networking events that seemed a bit 'woolly' like Shaun the Sheep. Other groups did a lot of talking, but no business was seemingly being done.

This group is for start-up business owners in the early stages of formulating their ideas in the back bedroom or at the kitchen table. Early adopters with a love of tech and social media, the misfits that just don't feel as if they fit in elsewhere.

We are selective community of like-minded people, we are altruistic and charitable, worry about our impact on the environment and collaborate with others who have an open mindset.

If you are pushy or looking for sales or are MLM this group is not for you, we are a new breed of business owner, looking to do good in the world and to meet others like us on our journey.

We will help better connect you, signpost you to FREE and cost effective resources and above everything support you emotionally through the intrepid start-up and small business journey.
