The SecureTech team connected us with more than 20 prospective customers and really helped hone in on our pricing and go-to-market strategy. The customer immersion helped us understand customer needs and develop new product ideas. We grew a lot as a business not only by engaging with more customers, but also learning how other SecureTech startups managed their struggles and successes.

APPLY FOR OUR Spring 2020 PROGRAM

 

We are looking for startups that have deployed a product and demonstrated early traction in the areas of cybersecurity, fraud, compliance, and physical security.

Startups should have at least six months of runway and have revenue, pilots, or other evidence of early product-market fit. We require that founders demonstrate this initial traction so they can take full advantage of the program, which involves pitching to customers and forming partnerships with large corporates and government entities.
