ScotlandIS is delighted to be delivering an innovation-focussed programme which culminates in an investor showcase event called Cyber Showcase.
This programme will showcase the frontrunners of Cyber Security start-ups that are founded or headquartered in Scotland. The scope includes all companies identifying as cyber security, digital security (including compliance and governance) and online safety technology.
The number of cyber companies operating in Scotland increased by more than 25 per cent this past year. Of these, nearly half are Scottish, and more than a fifth of those are start-ups. We are seeing some of crime protections most innovative solutions emerge.
CTOs and CISOs are urgently seeking new and innovative solutions, and yet navigating the sales market can become detrimental to their time. ScotlandIS is set to change that and provide a safe space for industry buyers to find what they need, quickly and noise free, directly from the founders of the high growth frontrunners identified.
Come along to the Showcase to hear directly from the founders of Scotland’s most pioneering start-ups in cyber security solutions.
What is the Cyber Showcase programme?
The programme will include the following:
- A series of online and in-person training and information sessions focused on pitching, investment readiness and public speaking. These will be interactive sessions, run individually and in small groups to ensure quality tailored training and insights
