With a growing pedigree in cybersecurity, the Mach37 Cyber Accelerator is back in session for the fall with a new crop of participants hoping to gain valuable advice and direction from mentors connected to the program.
Sponsored by the Center for Innovation Technology in Virginia, Mach37 has now helped 52 companies with launch or development assistance that includes close mentorship from fellow entrepreneurs, investors and domain experts in the security world, and a modest $50,000 grant to help bring ideas to fruition. Most importantly, the experience provides a valuable networking opportunity for participants to rub shoulders with the who's who of security.
The momentum continues during the next three months with another round of six companies that aim to change the game in a range of security niches, including training, privacy, identity management and embedded systems security. We reached out to the CEOs of each firm to get to know their companies better.
