Promo If you need your new security company to get noticed, Tech Nation’s Cyber programme is back, opening its doors for another cohort of infosec companies looking to scale at speed.

Backed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport and the Department for International Trade, Cyber 2.0 will help your company explore growth in an increasingly crowded market with your industry peers, and through sessions delivered by experts who’ve experienced all the ups and downs when building their own companies and organisations.

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 companies selected - includes 60 hours of support, delivered by over 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. Peer networking means candidates can mix with and learn from peers, as well as coaches. 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 exploring expansion options for your company in the UK and further afield in the US. Working with the DIT, 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 1.0 has helped us define a much more refined marketing & sales strategy, has given us new contacts and has generally provided us with a metaphorical springboard from which we can scale up rapidly.” said critical infrastructure cyber security startup Awen Collective.


“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 SIEM company My1Login.
