Academic teams progress commercialisation plans through CyberASAP

Designed to provide a comprehensive package of support to academic teams looking to commercialise their cyber security ideas, CyberASAP has whittled down the number of teams participating in this year’s programme from 28 to 20.

A team of independent assessors based their selection decisions on the strength of the teams Value Propositions – a key part of Phase 1 of the programme. The following teams now progress to the Market Validation stage, which includes a Meet the Entrepreneur Day – a chance to draw on the insights of individuals who have successfully developed start-up businesses; something which CyberASAP aims to equip these teams to do:
