  • This event has passed.

Kick-off event of the Cyber4Growth program with stakeholders and first participants

A cybersecurity growth camp program in Luxembourg

Position Luxembourg as THE platform to grow, accelerate and scale in cybersecurity

What’s in it?

A limited number of quality candidates, guided through a growth and acceleration program from 6 months up to 3 years.

Not limited to the national market but with a clear outreach to the European Digital Single Market or further developments to international markets

Why an event?

Pascal Bouvier, Managing Partner at MiddleGames Capital, Christophe Bianco, founder and CEO of Excellium, and Pascal Steichen, CEO of SECURITYMADEIN.LU will introduce the market needs in terms of innovation in cybersecurity and how the Cyber4Growth program is bringing a structured and coherentanswer.

The two first laureates will introduce their companies and solutions:

– Kevin Muller, CEO and co-founder of Passbolt.
– Umer Wasim, CEO and founder of Devseis.

What’s next?

The two selected startups will participate in the European Cybersecurity STARtup Award that was created to increase the awareness and visibility of state-of-the-art cybersecurity companies in Europe, both at the European and the global levels. A robust European cybersecurity industry means a better protected digital Europe.

European cybersecurity solution providers (particularly smaller companies) have often struggled for visibility in a fragmented European market. ECSO envisages therefore that this initiative will thus increase the European cybersecurity posture across citizens, businesses, and society, by increasing the prevalence of European uptake of European solutions.

The Award is built around a shared belief that European cybersecurity companies delivering ground-breaking cybersecurity solutions need recognition and investment support to be able to scale up and develop their business in Europe.

The Award leverages ECSO’s Cyber Investors Day, a well-established cybersecurity business matchmaking event, and similar events organised by ECSO’s partner organisations to create an initiative recognising the most promising European cybersecurity startups and SMEs.


Mission & Objectives

The Award links a series of local competitions endorsed by ECSO. The winners of each local event are selected by the respective local juries according to a setlist of criteria provided by ECSO and nominated for the final competition. Local winners are asked to present their solutions to the European jury, consisting of international investors, CISOs, representatives of large cybersecurity companies, ECSO representatives and cybersecurity experts, which make the final decision.

European Cybersecurity STARtup Award has the ambition to become one of the key European initiatives, alongside ECSO’s Cyber Investor Days and its recent proposal to create a European cybersecurity fund-of-funds. These initiatives are dedicated to the consolidation of the still highly fragmented European cybersecurity market and strengthening of its entire cybersecurity ecosystem
