Based in London, we help entrepreneurs from across the globe to build cyber security businesses, raise investment, and develop their commercial partnerships. Our alumni are already working with FTSE 100 companies, governments and world-leading investors, and we are now one of the most active global investors in cyber security. We believe that good security will be at the heart of any business succeeding in the 21st century.
In spring 2018, CyLon is launching in Singapore, as we expand our mission to find and develop the world’s best early stage cyber security businesses. CyLon Singapore is a collaboration with Singtel Innov8, the corporate venture capital arm of Asia’s leading communications technology group, and the National University of Singapore (NUS) through its entrepreneurial arm, NUS Enterprise.
With backing from the Singaporean Singapore Cyber Security Agency (CSA) and the Info-communications Media Development Authority, (IMDA), CyLon, Singtel Innov8 and the NUS are joining forces to build ICE71, ‘Innovation Cybersecurity Ecosystem’, the region’s first cyber security start-up hub. ICE71 will support early, growth stage cyber security start-ups and entrepreneurs, with a range of programmes designed to support cyber security individuals and start-ups from idea development to the creation, acceleration and scaling of cyber security startups.
CyLon Singapore will include the core elements of CyLon’s established London programme at ICE71, including a 5-day ‘Inspire’ pre-accelerator for aspiring entrepreneurs, and a 3-month ‘Accelerate’ programme aimed at startups, both running twice per year.
Inspire is a one-week programme developed for individuals from academia and industry, to test their theories and ideas, qualify feasibility and commercial viability, and develop their entrepreneurial skills. The programme offers a platform to develop workable business models and offers a foundational understanding of start-up creation, funding, product development and collaboration opportunities within the cybersecurity field.more
