UP18@it-sa is the new platform for start-ups in IT security: the first competition aimed solely at IT security start-ups in Germany, Austria and Switzerland will bring founders and young companies together with company decision-makers, consultancies and potential backers the day before the official start of it-sa.
Eighteen young companies will be selected by a jury for the CyberEconomy Match-Up on 8 October 2018, and will present their business ideas to industry professionals at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg. The winner of the UP18@it-sa award can look forward to individual coaching from the two initiators, Digital Hub Cybersecurity and the Bavarian IT Security Cluster. Frank Venjakob, Executive Director it-sa, is looking forward to the launch of the new event format: “The first competition aimed solely at security start-ups is an ideal boost for it-sa and perfectly complements the Startups@it-sa special exhibition area.”
The competition is open to start-ups from Germany, Austria and Switzerland with a focus on IT security or data protection that have been in operation for no more than seven years. The deadline for applications is 10 August 2018.
