We think cyber innovation thrives when teams are diverse, and that everyone who wants to join the sector and grow their business should have access to the right support.
The goal is for 30% of cyber companies involved to be female-led businesses and at least 15% of founders to come from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
We’re designing Cyber Runway with inclusion at the heart by partnering with a range of organisations to design and deliver the programme and connecting members with mentors from a range of backgrounds.
Cyber innovation is happening in every part of the country.
Cyber Runway will be delivered in person and virtually so startups across the UK can benefit.
And we want 50% of all companies to be based outside of London.

We also want to hear from anyone who wants to be a mentor or join our investor community.
