The European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO), in collaboration with the Women4Cyber Foundation, the Municipality of The Hague, InnovationQuarter (IQ), TIIN Capital, Security Delta (HSD) and KPN Ventures, is pleased to announce the return of ECSO's Cyber Investor Days to the city of The Hague, Netherlands. Following the success of last year's event, the second edition promises to be even more impactful, fostering innovation and growth in the European cybersecurity landscape. Start-ups across Europe are invited to seize this opportunity and apply to present their technologies (register befor 11 Sept).

Scheduled for 5 October, ECSO's Cyber Investor Days stands as an opportunity for cutting-edge European cybersecurity start-ups to showcase their innovative technologies and meet cybersecurity investors and players. The event serves as an exclusive matchmaking platform, bringing together visionary entrepreneurs and forward-thinking business representatives under one roof.

The Judging Panel, made up of cybersecurity experts and industry leaders, will choose the top two companies. These selected companies will then be nominated for the ECSO STARtup Award final competition, scheduled for early 2024. During this competition, they will compete against other nominees chosen throughout 2023 for the main title and international recognition.

“We are delighted to bring ECSO's Cyber Investor Days back to The Hague for the second consecutive year. ECSO's mission is to support the growth and competitiveness of the European cybersecurity industry while advocating for strong cybersecurity across all sectors. We have created Cyber Investor Days to support our members and partners with a practical tool to enhance their cybersecurity ecosystems and provide an inspiring backdrop for European start-ups to showcase their breakthrough solutions. With the steadfast commitment of our Dutch partners and the vibrant entrepreneurial spirit of The Hague, we are confident that this year's edition will bring a solid contribution to Europe’s cybersecurity posture.” – said Joanna Świątkowska, Chief Operating Officer at ECSO

Start-ups across Europe are invited to seize this opportunity and apply to present their technologies at ECSO's Cyber Investor Days. The event offers a unique chance to gain visibility, secure funding, and cultivate strategic partnerships that will accelerate their growth journey. Interested start-ups are encouraged to submit their applications before 11 September to be considered for participation.

We are excited to have some of the brightest European cybersecurity entrepreneurs pitching their companies here in The Hague. Building strong ‘cybersecurity-made-in-Europe’ capabilities is paramount for our society, and it is our objective to support entrepreneurs from across The Netherlands and the rest of Europe on their path to becoming global leaders. Together with ECSO, Municipality of The Hague, InnovationQuarter, HSD and KPN Ventures we are organising the Cyber Investor Days to give tomorrow’s cybersecurity leaders a platform to build pan-European partnerships and have access to growth-capital.” – said Michael Lucassen, Managing Partner at TIIN Capital.
