Cyber Security startups showcasing to an audience of potential investors and industrialists.

DCMS, in partnership with Innovate UK, have been running an Academic Startups Programme (delivered by the SETsquared partnership), which has taken some of the best cyber security ideas in academia from across the UK and provided support to progress towards a commercial business.

Twelve teams formed part of the initial cohort in January 2017.  Seven teams remain part of this programme and they have progressed through a three month market validation phase, established their new businesses and built working prototypes. The teams have been supported by industry experts who have provided advice to best enable their respective journeys.

The seven new businesses will present their products/solutions at this showcase event on 19th October to an audience of potential investors and industrialists.

Be part of the event and sign up today.


The Academic Startups programme is supported by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport with funding through the National Cyber Security Strategy 2016-2021. The NCSS sets out ambitious policies to protect the UK in cyber space. The vision for 2021 is that the UK is secure and resilient to cyber threats, prosperous and confident in the digital world.
