A competition for Brighton's most inventive minds.

About this Event

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.

A panel of specialists from the field of product design, eco brands, tech and finance will judge a shortlist and the winning entrepreneur with the most impressive product pitch will receive six-months of desk space, access to workshops filled with specialist equipment and a placement on the Plus X mentorship programme.

Meet the shortlisted Disruptors:

Soaked – Refillable shampoo and conditioner bottles to last. With a circular refillable pouch system, Soaked are cutting down on single-use plastic bottle waste.

MarinaTex – A home compostable material designed as an alternative to single-use plastic films. It is made of waste material from the fishing industry and organic binders.

ReManuFactory – Using plastic waste from Brighton to create modular, customisable and circularly designed eyewear frames with matching cases.

Gomi Design – Turning plastic otherwise deemed “non-recyclable” into portable speakers, they also collaborate with brands to help them design waste into products.

Meet the judges:

Daisy Stapley-Bunten – Founder and Editor of Startups Magazine

Marija Butkovik – Founder and CEO of Women of Wearables

Mat Hunter – Plus X Co-CEO and previously Chief Design Officer at the Design Council

Holly Price – Santander Universities Relationship Manager (South East)

Register now and join us on November the 12th for an evening showcasing some of Brighton's most inventive and disruptive ideas in sustainable product design.
