MACH37 created to accelerate the development of the next generation of information security product companies

Herndon, VA (PRWEB) January 28, 2014

MACH37&trade, the new cybersecurity accelerator at the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT), is announcing that beginning with the start of its upcoming cohort in March that participating companies will receive a $50,000 investment in conjunction with accelerator services. This investment doubles the previous amount of $25,000.

Rick Gordon, MACH37&trade Managing Partner, said, "This additional financial investment will not only help Mach37 entrepreneurs attract complementary team members, but also will provide them with additional resources necessary to expand target market validation and further accelerate technology development."

The accelerator takes entrepreneurs through an intensive 90-day program to validate their ideas, technologies and markets, and ultimately launch companies that secure private investment for growth.

Upon acceptance into the program, companies receive a cash investment to complement program participation in exchange for a small amount of equity. Following completion of the program the CIT GAP Funds will match up to $100,000 for companies headquartered in Virginia. MACH37&trade companies will benefit from ongoing access to MACH37's vast network resources and support throughout the life of their enterprise.

MACH37&trade is accepting applications from information security startups and entrepreneurs for its Spring Cohort beginning March 17th. Applications may be submitted online at: https://www.mach37.com/apply. The deadline to submit is January 31.
