A look back at the CNBC Disruptor 50: 6 years, 167 companies

You may be surprised to learn that shares of MongoDB jumped more than 50 percent in the first six months after the company's IPO in October 2018. We weren't. Maybe you knew about Dropbox and Spotify but had to look up the names DocuSign and Zuora when they went public. You could have learned about all of these start-ups on previous years' CNBC Disruptor 50 lists. This year marks the sixth year of the CNBC Disruptor 50, and in that short history a lot has changed for these companies. Twenty-nine past Disruptors are now public companies; 17 have been acquired; four of the previous Disruptors went the way of many start-ups: bankrupt. Five companies have made the Disruptor list all six years. Below is the complete history of the CNBC Disruptor 50, with details on each of the 167 start-ups to make the list between 2013 and 2018.
