News article

Innovative cyber start ups, small businesses and scaleups will benefit from a new scheme to help them launch and grow their businesses

Cyber Runway will see entrepreneurs and businesses across the UK get access to business masterclasses, mentoring, product development support, networking events and backing to trade internationally and secure investment so they can turn their ideas into commercial successes.

The Cyber Runway programme is funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and delivered by Plexal in partnership with CyLon, Deloitte and The Centre for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT). The programme aims to support at least 160 organisations and companies over the course of six months.

Companies participating in DCMS’s cyber growth initiatives in the past have, on average, more than tripled their revenues year on year.

Applications can now be made for the Launch stream, with a closing date of 25 May 2022.

You can make an expression of interest for the Grow and Scale streams which start in September 2022.
