CyLon aims to be the best possible partner for talented, ambitious entrepreneurs looking to launch, build or scale a cyber security business
We believe that the breakthrough security technologies of the future will come from creative innovators. We support those who want to take on the challenge.
CyLon Scale supports the most promising global security startups.
Through CyLon Scale, we invest up to £150,000 in startups building the cyber security technologies of the future.
Companies in which we invest will benefit from a platform which offers cyber entrepreneurs everything they need to take their startup to the next level, focusing on winning customers, meeting investors, and getting access to advisors from across the security industry.
“CyLon’s support has been instrumental at every stage in our development.
Their introductions have helped us secure major customers and investors, and we truly value their continued guidance. They really do know the cyber security space like no other.”

CyLon Spark helps individuals take their first steps on their cyber innovation journey.
These programmes help the cyber-curious to roadtest their ideas, meet potential co-founders and collaborators, and provide a platform from which to launch a business or identify a new career path in security.
We have run these programmes worldwide, helping to stimulate the cyber security ecosystems in Europe, Asia and the Middle East to date, supporting over 200 aspiring cyber entrepreneurs.
“The whole programme was amazing. I learned a lot, managed to meet some amazing people, and am definitely a lot more motivated to launch my startup than before”
“I took a three month class on entrepreneurship and didn’t learn as much as I learned on this programme.”

CyLon Go aims to increase the number of people from underrepresented backgrounds entering the cyber workforce.
We have always been conscious of the lack of diversity across our Founder community and our teams. We believe this is, sadly, reflective of the industry overall, so we have decided to renew our own efforts to make a difference.
CyLon Go therefore offers financial and other assistance to individuals from underrepresented communities to pursue relevant training in pursuit of a cyber security career.
