Join us and be the first to preview a range of highly promising cyber security products and services from leading UK academic teams. Hear their pitches and assess their offerings in this unique showcase of ready-to-commercialise cyber security innovations.

Discover cyber security prototypes with real commercial potential

To keep our highly-connected world safe, we need a continuous pipeline of innovative cyber security services and products. Many of those originate in academic labs throughout the UK, with prototypes of the very best developed and accelerated via CyberASAP (Cyber Security Academic Start up Accelerator Programme).

The CyberASAP Demo Day is where you have the chance to preview these Proofs of Concept and meet the talented teams behind them, for the very first time.

CyberASAP selected 24 academic teams to join the current programme in April 2021, and at Demo Day, you’ll be seeing the final 10 academic teams chosen by independent assessors to progress through to this final phase.

Who should attend?

All those interested in supporting the cyber security ecosystem are invited to attend this event, particularly Investors and potential commercial collaborators.

Initial registration will be for online access to this event. There is limited capacity to attend this London event in person and meet the teams for face to face demonstrations of their prototypes. You will be asked for an expression of interest in attending the event in person during registration, and the CyberASAP team will contact you with further details.
