Bandura, LLC, a cyber security software company and maker of the fast, automated, U.S. Defense-tested PoliWall Security Platform and ProACT™ Cyber Threat Aggregation and Risk-Scoring server; today announces support from Cultivation Capital’s SixThirty FinTech and Prosper Women Entrepreneurs accelerators. Relocating headquarters from Maryland to Missouri with the award of the Missouri Technology Corporation (MTC) investment matching funds, Bandura found a home at the Cambridge Innovation Center (CIC) in midtown St Louis in October 2014. Through the accelerator programs and the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and proximity to the second largest density of financial services organizations in the US, Bandura quickly closed its bridge financing round, grew its customer base, and brought manufacturing of two of its PoliWall products to the St. Louis region.
“Locating in St. Louis has been the tipping point,” said Suzanne Magee, CEO and Co-Founder of Bandura, LLC. “The PoliWall security platform was experiencing a natural demand from banks, online payment systems, and insurance companies. MTC matching funds encouraged investors like the SixThirty program which has provided the financial support and direct introductions to accelerate growth in this key vertical. Prosper Women Entrepreneurs provides the unique mentor-ship and support for growth-oriented women-owned businesses seeking to reach larger funding sources , stretch their vision of the possible, and achieve revenue goals. We have also found a rich sources of engineering and business talent from the universities here, and when looking for manufacturing alternatives, we found that right outside our door at J&B Technolgoy!!”
