Globalize a technology venture early and rapidly
Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) March 28, 2015
LTW Cyber is an innovation hub for technology ventures that have agreed to collaborate for the purpose of addressing the needs of the global market for cybersecurity. Each technology venture will pursue its own opportunities to grow while seeking collaborative opportunities with the other ventures that are part of LTW Cyber.
Ventures in LTW Cyber focus on secure application security, grounded by trusted firmware, and complemented by offerings identifying vulnerabilities and analyzing open source. As the hub matures, the product mix will become increasingly compelling.
This is the first time that Lead to Win has carried out such an initiative. Carleton’s Technology Innovation Management (TIM) program expects to transform the existing Lead To Win ecosystem into an ecosystem with innovation hubs made up of companies that go global from day one. The first of these hubs will be built around the cybersecurity space.
The companies that are part of LTW Cyber include:
Art Low (M.A.Sc. TIM, Carleton University) is the founder and CEO of Crack Semiconductor, a provider of cryptographic security products used in high value billing transactions generated by network processors. Nebula is an innovation that secures client end nodes seeking to connect to cloud networks by measuring all loaded software down to the platform firmware.
Ned Nadima (B.Com., University of Ottawa) is the founder of Denilson, a mobile payment solution that enables everybody to accept mobile payment anytime, anywhere without any additional hardware such as cash registers.
Global Cybersecurity Monitor
Ahmed Shah (B.Eng. Software and TIM student, Carleton University) is the program manager for the Global Cybersecurity Monitor (GCM). The GCM will support the ventures in LTW Cyber to globalize rapidly and establish collaborative research and business relationships worldwide.
Keystone D’Aout (Bachelor in Electrical Engineering, Ecole de Technologie Superieure) is the founder of Kainos Solutions. The venture intends to become a global provider of situational awareness systems. Kainos Solutions seeks to develop trusted products that will protect, secure and stabilize the world around us.
Ken Duck (B.Sc. Specialized Honours, Computer Science, York University) and Jaqui Duck (B.A. Specialized Honours Philosophy, York University) are co-founders of Vör Security. All modern software is built on a foundation of third party dependencies and therefore inherits the weaknesses and flaws in these dependencies. Vör Security identifies software dependencies, vulnerabilities and weaknesses and provides solutions and training that enables companies to secure their software before release.
