The technologies that you’ll be using in the future are in the hands of startups!
Listen and learn as promising startups present solutions serving key technologies and services in the sector, spanning cyber defence, cyber-protection, and cyber resilience.
This year, the European Cyber Week pitch contest will indeed be European in scope. The winners will automatically go through to compete for the European Cybersecurity STARtup Award, a ‘prize of prizes’ put up by event partners ECSO (the European Cyber Security Organisation).
The pitch day will also feature talks by contracting entities and industrial players offering advice for startups in the open innovation value chain, such as how to get from the idea to the market, and how to determine the value of cyber innovation. The day will also see the launch of the ‘ECW startup community’ and news from 2019 winners Harfanglab, one year on from their victory.
The day is organised by Sopra Steria and Destination Rennes Business Services with the support of Bretagne Développement Innovation (BDI) and in partnership with ECSO.
If you’re involved in a startup (a genuinely new firm that’s independent and less than five years old), why not enter the contest? Contact:
