CNBC looks to Dobson Centre for advice on annual disruptor list
Even in a year that venture capitalists’ go-to bank collapsed, and venture capital funding slowed to a trickle, the disruptive power of startups has never been clearer. The 2023 CNBC Disruptor 50 list was the eleventh iteration of the list, and the top spot should come as no surprise. The generative artificial intelligence company OpenAI is the maker of ChatGPT, and no new technological application has created more buzz since the dawn of social media – or even the web itself. To make the list, CNBC considered quantitative data, and the opinions of a group of 51 leading thinkers in innovation, including McGill Dobson Centre for Entrepreneurship’s Academic Director Marie Josee Lamothe.
