Cyber London is a hub for the cyber security companies of tomorrow.
Our three month accelerator programme offers some of Europe’s most promising entrepreneurs the training necessary to build and grow a successful cyber security company. Alongside an intensive professional curriculum, Cyber London’s participants also receive personal guidance and support from an accomplished network of mentors. Our programme culminates with a Demo Day, allowing participants to present their products, progress and potential to a range of partners and investors.
Our incubator space supports more advanced cyber security companies looking to take their businesses to the next level. For the duration of the programme, our incubator teams access the benefits of Cyber London’s unique network and expertise whilst they focus on business and product development.
Both the accelerator and incubator are housed in fully-furnished, modern office space in London.
