ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., January 24, 2017—CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, today announced it is accepting nominations for its fifth annual CNBC Disruptor 50, an exclusive list of the most ambitious, innovative private companies transforming the economy and forcing the public giants to rethink the way they do business.

The deadline to submit the nomination form is February 6, 2017.  As in years past, all private, independently-owned companies are eligible to submit, and any company founder or executive, representative of the company, or investors in the company are welcome to submit the nomination form.

Nominees will be put through a comprehensive and rigorous process of researching and scoring, across a wide range of quantitative and qualitative criteria.

Winners will be notified in April and the list will be published in May across CNBC’s TV and Digital platforms.

In 2016, the 50 companies on the list were worth a combined $241 billion.  The list featured household names like Uber, Airbnb, Spotify and Snapchat as well as high-flying newcomers like Jaunt and Instacart.
