What's it all about?

Plus X Brighton champions innovation and invention. With an expert team of specialists and a curated culture of collaboration, we nurture ideas to thrive. Which is why we are launching our first ever Disruptors competition – seeking and rewarding local entrepreneurial talent in the field of product design.

The theme? Sustainability. With unthinkable volumes of waste from the products we use, it’s time to support ideas that encourage us to behave in a more considered, circular and eco-friendly way. Our Earth is amazing, and we need to preserve it.

How it works

A panel of specialists from the fields of product design, eco brands and technology will judge a shortlist of contenders and the winning entrepreneur with the most impressive product pitch will receive six-months of Plus X Brighton desk space, access to workshops filled with specialist equipment, expert mentorship and guidance in product and business development. 

Judges to be announced shortly!
