CNBC Disruptor 50 List Includes Thrive Market

The annual CNBC Disruptor 50 list spotlights private companies pursuing major market opportunities. Among them, Thrive Market, an online grocer, has earned a spot on the prestigious 2024 list, emphasizing its dedication to innovation. Since its start in 2014, Thrive Market has gathered over 6,000 health-conscious products, including pantry staples and sustainable home and beauty items, with over 500 under its private label. In February, the company reached a notable milestone by becoming the first online-only retailer approved by the USDA to accept SNAP EBT payments, making healthier choices more accessible.

In the world of disruptive businesses, artificial intelligence plays a central role, with about two-thirds of the Disruptor 50 companies seeing it as “critical” to their strategies. OpenAI leads this trend once again. Together, the 2024 Disruptors have received an impressive $70 billion in funding, reflecting a total implied valuation of $436 billion, showing a vibrant landscape of innovation and growth across various sectors.
