Attention security startup founders: Give your fledgling Brit biz a boost with Tech Nation’s free Cyber 2.0 school
Promo If you need to get your new IT security company noticed, the Tech Nation Cyber programme is back, opening its doors for another cohort of British infosec startups looking to scale at speed.
Backed by the UK government’s Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, and Department for International Trade, Cyber 2.0 will help your company explore growth in an increasingly crowded market – with industry peers, and through sessions delivered by experts who’ve experienced all the ups and downs when building their own companies and organisations. These expert speakers include founders of the likes of Darktrace, Garrison, and Immersive Labs.
With an average of £580,000 in earned revenue and £3m in raised funds per candidate in the Cyber 1.0 programme, there are good reasons to get involved. The six-month programme, which is completely free of charge for the 25 UK-based companies selected, includes 60 hours of support, delivered by more than 20 coaches.
More specifically, that’s six founder-focused “masterclass” sessions and four senior leader-focused sessions, delivered by experienced coaches, dispensing wisdom on fundamental growth barriers in cyber-security, such as culture, talent, and international expansion. Candidates can also mix with and learn from their peers, as well as coaches, during networking opportunities. Cyber’s alumni network – including such organisations as My1Login, SaltDNA and Crypta Labs – is also at your disposal for conversation and guidance.
National and international trips will explore expansion options for your company in the UK and further afield in the US. Working with the Department for International Trade, delegates can be fast-tracked onto trade missions if applicable to your future plans. Bespoke promotional activity for your business, from editorial content to investor networking, is also available. New for Cyber 2.0, young leaders can also take advantage of exclusive meetups specially arranged for those just starting out.
“Tech Nation Cyber has been a hugely valuable programme, providing peer learning and best-practice insights to help My1Login continue to scale and further expand our enterprise customer base,” said a spokesperson for SIEM company My1Login.
