Dreamit SecureTech is a growth-focused program for pre-”Series A” cybersecurity and physical security startups. Unlike most startup accelerators, over 50% of the program is remote participation, giving founders the flexibility they need to concentrate on their businesses. And instead of taking a large, fixed equity stake, Dreamit does this primarily for the right to invest in your next round at a slight discount.
