The spring class of the MACH37 Cyber Accelerator has been announced, and this group of six startup companies brings in technical talent from Silicon Valley to Eastern Europe as well as new companies from Italy and France.

Sponsored by the state of Virginia’s nonprofit corporation, the Center for Innovation Technology, the six startups receive a $50,000 grant to develop and launch their ideas into tangible companies. Top officials and CEOs from the companies attend a three-month program that guides these top technical people on the mechanics of launching a security business.

Rick Gordon, managing partner at MACH37, said these six companies bring to a total of 46 the number of cybersecurity companies MACH37 has helped launch since the program started in 2013.

“What’s new this year is that we’ve had a number of entries from other places,” Gordon said. “All of them had a strong desire to come to Virginia to launch their companies. We like to think that from Howard County, Maryland, to Loudon County here in Virginia there’s more cyber talent than just about anywhere else on the planet.”

This spring’s program will conclude on June 13 with a Demo Day in which the companies will have a chance to pitch their ideas to a group of external mentors, investors and stakeholders. Dark Reading met with representatives of the six companies earlier this week. The following slideshow offers a short overview of each company’s technology and contact information.
