MACH37 brings together domain experts, successful entrepreneurs, and investors who are deeply involved in the cyber and cybersecurity market to create a platform that drives success for innovators and their startups. MACH37 cohort companies will be introduced to investors, channel partners, and early adopter customers. They will also be coached through a focused 90-day programme in which the entrepreneurs are mentored in all aspects of creating a sustainable and scalable business.

“The fiscal constraints of today’s market combined with the recent spike in emerging technical solutions make accelerators like MACH37 a more important partner than ever for startups’ successful differentiation, traction, and growth,” said Jennifer Addie, COO and CWO of MACH37. “The cyber ecosystem is experiencing an awakening across sectors as the need to protect resources and increase data efficiency become critically apparent through cyber attacks, threat actors and war. Our alumni are playing key roles in protecting organizations and pushing cyber progress and this cohort is poised to do the same.”  

“Through MACH37, RunSafe Security refined its go-to-market strategy, met with investors, secured funding, and built a network of supporters who have made a difference at every stage of our growth,” said alumnus Joseph Saunders, CEO of RunSafe Security.
