Kaspersky iHub Invites Startups to Showcase Cybersecurity Solutions
The Kaspersky Innovation Hub (iHub) is inviting startups to collaborate on developing cybersecurity solutions with a special focus on small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) through its Open Innovation Program.
Winners will be offered to launch a pilot project with Kaspersky, the international cybersecurity company. The idea behind the initiative is to invite teams and individual projects, which are developing cutting-edge cybersecurity solutions meant specifically for SMBs.
The best initiatives will be invited to participate in pilot projects, wherein they will work jointly with Kaspersky on product development. There’s a further possibility of access to Kaspersky’s channel partners (including distributors and resellers), clients, and prospects.
The winners will also receive technical and business mentoring from the company’s experts. Applications are being invited from startups that already have a legal entity, product, or prototype.
The Kaspersky team will assess technical and business validation, investment opportunity of the startups, also their readiness and interest in collaborating with Kaspersky iHub to improve the global cybersecurity landscape.
The scouting process will be organized on four technical platforms – GoTech, Dsight, Axis Innovation, and F6S.
“With our new startup call, the Kaspersky Innovation Hub aims to enhance our efforts with innovators to meet the specific needs of small and medium-sized organizations,” says Vitaly Mzokov, Head of the Innovation Hub at Kaspersky.
Selected entrepreneurs will be invited to present their projects in front of a jury during Online Demo Selection Days on September 29-30, 2020. For more details and to apply to take part in the challenge, please click here. The closing date for online applications is September 13, 2020.
