Cyber Runway

Cyber Runway is a new programme to support the growth of innovative cyber startups, small businesses and scaleups.

Backed by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport, the programme will provide access to:

  • Business masterclasses.
  • Mentoring.
  • Help with product development.
  • Networking events.
  • Support to secure investment.

Who can get involved?

At least 160 companies will benefit from the Cyber Runway programme over the next six months, which will cover three streams:

  • Launch: Support for entrepreneurs to launch their business, build a minimum viable product and create a network.
  • Grow: Support to help startups and smaller businesses address their growing pains, access funding and achieve commercial success.
  • Scale: Mentoring to help scaleups grow rapidly.

Cyber Runway will also help improve diversity in the cybersecurity sector. It is aiming for 30% of cyber companies involved to be female-led businesses and at least 15% of founders to be from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
