The CyberLaunch Approach
CyberLaunch selects up to 10 cybersecurity and machine learning startups per cohort, providing deep strategic coaching, seed capital, mentorship, and access to c-level executives. The highly structured program begins by focusing on market and product fit; customer discovery; mentor and investor introductions, and validating proof of concepts. By the end of the 12-week experience, CyberLaunch startups will have positioned their companies for success and established a scalable and repeatable business model.
Applications are now being accepted for the Winter 2017 Cohort. Startups can apply now at (cyberlaunch.vc/apply). For more information on CyberLaunch, follow the accelerator @CyberLaunchVC on Twitter and Facebook.
CyberLaunch is the leading accelerator for information security and machine learning startups. Twice a year we invest in a select number of startups (up to $100k per startup). The startups move to Atlanta for 3 months, during which we work intensively with them to get the company into the best possible shape to acquire customers and to refine their pitch to investors. Each cycle culminates in Demo Day, when the startups present their companies to a carefully selected, invite-only audience. But CyberLaunch doesn’t end on Demo Day; we continue to help founders for the life of their company, and beyond.
