With Meet @ Plexal, all founders get 1:1 access to Plexal’s innovation and leadership team. We explore how we can support a founder’s mission, whether it’s making an introduction, helping with a challenge they’re stuck on or spotting a way for us to collaborate with each other.
All members also get mentoring from our cyber innovation team, who work with the biggest names in the sector, and free 1:1 consultations with our partner Informed Funding, who can advise on cashflow, financial forecasting and raising investment.
And our community team is always on hand. From fixing an IT issue to recommending somewhere for lunch, they’ve got you.
Plexal member CyberOwl is a graduate of our LORCA cyber accelerator and also joined LORCA Ignite: our new scaleup programme for graduates to help them turbocharge their growth.
Using data analytics and machine learning, the startup helps the maritime and critical national infrastructure sectors manage security threats in complex environments.
“Our mission is to get people to move to a more proactive cyber position,” says CEO Daniel Ng. “We don’t think you should wait for that attack to complete and your loss to kick in before you spring into action. Be predictive, take action earlier.”
After graduating from our LORCA cyber accelerator, Licel decided to stick around as a member of our community.
Having started in a small office with a team of two, the company has moved into a larger space to cater to its rapid growth.
The startup believes people should be able to use everyday technology without having to worry about security, so it’s on a mission to protect apps from cyber attacks and encourage security by design principles.
Licel has over 1,000 customers in 70 countries and protects everything from apps used in healthcare to mobile banking apps that handle very sensitive data.
We’ve got our own indoor park, private phone booths, a workshop space for rapid prototyping and plenty of snugs and booths for impromptu meetings that are free to use.
You can also book our 20-seater boardroom or smaller meeting rooms when you need some privacy.
