We run proprietary programmes designed to support cybersecurity startups through different stages - from idea development to scaling a late-stage business.
The programme is run by CyLon, a leading European cybersecurity accelerator who has supported over 70 cybersecurity entrepreneurs from academia and industry to-date. Many of the alumni have gone on to further develop products and successfully turn their ideas into fully established cybersecurity businesses.
The intensive five-day bootcamp at our premises at Block71 features workshops on technical development, business fundamentals and team building, as well as networking and mentoring opportunities. Upon completion of the bootcamp, participants will continue to receive guidance and mentoring over a three-month period to keep the momentum of their business ideas going.
