The Cyber Security Academic Startups Accelerator Programme ‚Äì Phase 3
13 University teams are at the final stage of the Year 2 Programme and will develop an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) for their cyber security ideas.
The Programme is funded by the DCMS in collaboration with Innovate UK and KTN.
Twenty-six teams from twenty-two Universities joined the programme in February 2018. In the first phase, they were¬†supported to develop their cyber security ideas into clear value propositions over a six-week period.
In the second phase in May & June the remaining seventeen teams focused on market validation of their value propositions. As part of this, they represent the Programme at the InfoSecurity Europe show – within the DCMS-sponsored Cyber Innovation Zone.
The third and final MVP phase commenced last week. The teams participated in an intensive two-day bootcamp on MVP best practice as well as hearing a range of case studies and perspectives from Darktrace, BT, Crossword Cybersecurity & alumni from the 2017 programme.
Applications for the Year 3 cohort, subject to funding being confirmed, are expected to open in February 2019, with the programme commencing in April 2019. Register your interest here and we’ll let you know when more details are available.
