Top Success Stories: DisruptSW – Then & Now

Disrupt South West is an initiative by and collaboration between ADLIB, Foot Anstey and Tällt Ventures with the aim to feature, highlight, showcase and to inspire South West business success and growth stories, those businesses and people that truly disrupt and challenge, those that imagined the unimaginable.

As part of this, we caught up with a range of Disrupter Businesses to feature their stories on the DisruptSW Blog.

Here, a collection of some of our recent catch-ups with some businesses that ranked on the 2017 edition of the DisruptSW index.

We caught up with Harry Stevens, Managing Director at Rugged Interactive to find out about what’s happened since we last spoke as part of the Disrupt SW initiative. Here, their very own “truly imaginative story” and how thinking differently sets them apart. We also asked about any new products or services that they released since we last caught up in 2017 and gathered what’s in the pipeline for Rugged Interactive.
