Our favorite local cyber security startup accelerator, Mach37, has just announced their latest class. The new companies include Locurity, Cyber 20/20, 418 Intelligence, TensorWrench, Cyber Algorithms, Atriceps, and Huntress Labs. Congratulations to the new class.
On Monday, Mach37, the Herndon, Va.-based cybersecurity accelerator that has garnered a national profile, will welcome seven new security startups as part of its Fall 2015 cohort. The newest cohort includes a number of local companies and entrepreneurs—hailing from Maryland and Virginia.
Va. Governor Terry McAuliffe has been quoted as saying that he aspires to make Virginia the ‘cybersecurity Silicon Valley.’ And Mach37 is a state-funded catalyst, via the Center for Innovative Technology (CIT), that’s working to accomplish that goal.
The seven early/seed stage cybersecurity startups will complete an intensive 90 day program where they will receive mentorship from a star-studded crew of industry executives and Mach37 consultants. Mach37 mentors include the likes of George Schu, a retired senior executive from Booz Allen, Verisign and Oracle.
