Our Lessons from 1000 Cyber Startups
Every year, CyLon receives hundreds of applications to its programmes in London and Singapore. Since CyLon was founded in 2015, we have scrutinised over 1000 early-stage cyber companies. As a result, we have developed a pretty good sense of what works and what doesn’t - not just in security innovation, but in the team dynamics of a successful startup. In this white paper, we distill some findings from our analysis of CyLon’s early-stage cyber company applications.OPEN THE FULL REPORT
