The Disrupt Erie Awards party is a high energy, pulsing party that will inspire your belief and renew your confidence in our region’s potential.

Join us this year as we celebrate the best entrepreneurs’ and service providers’ that Erie has to offer!

Disruption is a seismic event.

It can be destructive or it can be constructive.
It is at the intersection of “How it’s always been done” and ‘The new approach.’
It’s the thing that causes revolutions of thought. It is what brought us the internet and email.

It’s what brought us out of the Dark Ages and into the Renaissance.

Disruption is a freshness of thinking that creates change.

It is the very foundation of this country.

You are driving that change. You are a part of something important and soulful.
It doesn’t matter if you own a doughnut shop, a dry cleaner, a tech startup or a franchise.

Your ability to see new things and innovate fearlessly in your approach to business is the key to disruption. And all of it together is key to making a lasting economic impact and creating lasting opportunities. It is the only thing that ever has.
