It is a major hub for cybersecurity in Europe, with the presence of Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre, NATO Communications and Information Agency, the Dutch cybersecurity, intelligence and security agencies as well as a wide range of cybersecurity businesses. The Hague has an unparalleled ecosystem around cybersecurity – the Security Delta (HSD) – with over 275 public and private partners collaborating to make a difference in securing our digitising society. The core is the HSD Campus in The Hague. The ecosystem is designed to facilitate organisations by providing access to knowledge, innovation, talent, capital and market.
“We are excited to have some of the brightest European cybersecurity entrepreneurs pitch 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 become global leaders. Together with ECSO, 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 TIIN Capital.
“We are delighted that this year’s edition of the ECSO Cyber Investor Days is taking place at the HSD Campus. By joining our forces together with the European Cyber Security Organisation (ECSO), InnovationQuarter, KPN Ventures and TIIN Capital/Dutch Security TechFund the international bridges between public and private are getting more accessible for Dutch cybersecurity start-ups and scale-ups at European level. This is one of the goals we aim at, to provide access to innovation, market, and capital for growth in our Dutch ecosystem.”, said Joris den Bruinen, General Director Security Delta (HSD).
“I am proud to see how far the Cyber Investor Days have evolved since their launch in 2017”, says ECSO Secretary General Luigi Rebuffi. “This match-making event has gathered over 300 cybersecurity SMEs and start-ups from across Europe and given visibility to local and national expertise. With its vibrant cybersecurity ecosystem and entrepreneurial focus, The Hague meets all the criteria to make this another great edition of this event”, he concludes.
The Cyber Investor Days are a guarantee of quality for investors, who can take the opportunity to listen to pitches by start-ups that have been pre-selected by a jury of cybersecurity experts. With an attractive programme, participants will also have the chance to participate in B2B meetings and listen to a cutting-edge fireside chat.
