ScotlandIS has a fantastic opportunity for Scottish companies with a cybersecurity product to join us at the International Cyber Expo in London on the 26th and 27th of September.
Thanks to funding secured from Scottish Enterprise, six selected companies will have a free exhibition stand at the ScotlandIS Pavilion at the expo and a ten-minute pitching slot on the Innovation Stage to investors and venture capitalists in attendance.
International Cyber Expo 2023 is the perfect meeting place for CISOs, CTOs, Managing Directors, business owners, cyber security specialists, government officials and end-users to connect and source products from the thriving cyber security market.
Finalists will have the chance to showcase themselves at the expo to an audience of senior decision-makers who are focused on protecting multinational businesses, SMEs, public sector organisations, government and critical national infrastructure.
Companies wishing to participate in the trip simply need to fill out an application form, and the finalists will be selected by an expert panel of judges – ScotlandIS will have no involvement in this process.
The following criteria must be met in order to apply:
- must be a cybersecurity product company
- must be based or registered in Scotland
- must be actively seeking investment
- must be able to commit to the below dates
Key dates to be available:
- 29th August – half day pitching training in Linlithgow
- 6th September – webinar on ‘What Investors Are Looking For’
- 19th September – one-to-one coaching in Linlithgow
- 26th & 27th September – International Cyber Expo in London
Coaching sessions taking place ahead of the expo will be run by public speaking expert, Greg Summers, who led last year’s inaugural Cyber Showcase programme. We had excellent feedback from Showcase participants on how Greg’s sessions helped to improve their confidence and their pitching abilities.
We strongly encourage any Scottish companies with a cybersecurity product to apply, in order to highlight the sheer innovation and talent that we have in Scotland to the London market of investors and buyers.
