DSRUPTR was founded on one single objective:
You see, I’m a misfit, a rebel, and a troublemaker. I’m the one who sees things differently. I’m not fond of rules. And I have no respect for the status quo. I seek to change the world every day. And I do this by exploring the ways in which design + technology + agile/lean methods can disrupt your thinking, strategy, and execution.
