20 of the UK’s leading cyber scaleups join Tech Nation Cyber growth programme
After an impressive competitive group of applications and careful judging process, we are delighted to announce the 20 exceptional cyber security companies to make up the inaugural cohort of Tech Nation Cyber, the sector-specific scaleup programme.
Margot James, Minister for Digital and the Creative Industries, commented: “Congratulations to all the firms selected for this new programme which shows the depth of tech talent right across the country. This important scheme will not only allow promising cyber security startups to access world-class expert advice but also help us achieve our aim of making Britain the safest place in the world to be online.”
The goal of Cyber is to provide the UK’s most promising and ambitious cyber security scaleups with curated workshops, mentorships, guidance, meetups, and honest conversations, led by expert scale coaches and knowledgeable entrepreneurs. In this six-month long programme the cohort is given the help they need to navigate fundamental growth challenges. The aim is to cover everything from recruitment, scaling abroad, creating a sustainable company culture and everything in between.
The programme will entail peer-to-peer learning, kicking off at the Farncombe Estate in the Cotswolds on 2–3 May. The launch will be led by market-leading experts within the cyber security space, with speakers including: Dave Palmer, Director of Technology and Emily Orton, CMO at Darktrace, James Chappell, Founder and Chief Innovation Officer at Digital Shadows, and James Hadley, CEO of Immersive Labs.
The 20 companies we have selected to join our first cohort are some of the most ambitious and talented mid-stage cyber experts from across the UK. We are delighted to have them on board and excited to see what the future will bring for them.
