Cyber Runway is the UK’s largest cyber accelerator that’s funded by the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology and delivered by Plexal, the innovation company.
Cyber Runway supports cyber entrepreneurs and startups at every stage with four accelerator programmes:
- Launch: A bootcamp to help budding entrepreneurs, graduates and spinouts get their business off the ground and build connections.
- Grow: A programme for cyber startups and SMEs to nail their product-market fit, get commercialisation support and lay the foundations for growth.
- Scale: A programme helping scaleups and high-growth startups blast away any barriers to growth nationally and around the world.
- Ignite: A programme for exceptional founders of cyber security startups to help them develop as leaders and scale their businesses.
Applications are open now for Launch and Ignite (deadline 26 June), with both programmes starting in July 2023. Plexal is also accepting expressions of interest for Grow and Scale, which take place later in the year.
Launch is an entrepreneur bootcamp that takes place online and in person in London, with all hotels, travel and food fully funded. It’s for anyone who wants to validate and develop an idea or MVP for a cyber security startup, build their network and launch a new business.
Ignite is a leadership programme for six exceptional founders of cyber security startups. Through mentoring, tailored support, leadership coaching and connections to industry and investors, founders will develop as leaders and gear their businesses up for growth. Members will also benefit from being part of a unique and supportive community of founders and take part in an international showcase event.
