Founded by leading security, investment and policy experts, CyLon offers entrepreneurs the platform they need to build and grow a successful cybersecurity company.

Our three-month programme offers a uniquely tailored professional curriculum, support from a highly accomplished network of mentors, and concludes with a Demo Day where participating startups present to a wide range of leading industry partners and investors.

During the programme, each team receives:

- Funding: CyLon invests £15,000 in each team, in return for a 3% equity stake in your business. This funding allows you to commit fully to the three-month programme, and to focus on building your technology and company. You will be introduced to a variety of other investors throughout the programme, and will have the opportunity to pitch for further funding at CyLon’s Demo Day.

- Training: Our intensive training curriculum covers both the challenges and opportunities encountered by early stage cyber security companies, helping you to achieve product-market fit in a uniquely technical and demanding industry. The curriculum includes everything from business fundamentals and recruitment to product pricing and technical training.

- Connections: As the leading hub of cyber innovation in Europe, we pride ourselves on offering key connections for our startups. During the programme we invite leading figures from industry and government to speak to our companies, arrange business development trips, and introduce potential partners and clients.

- Office Space: During the course of the programme, all teams will be based in our fantastic London office, kindly provided by Winton Capital. This space offers our companies everything from valuable collaboration opportunities to delicious lunches.

13 week programme. Application deadline 15th of July 2018. Programme starts 10th of September.
