The climax of the Cyber Security Academic Startup Accelerator Programme (CyberASAP), Demo Day saw the final 10 academic teams from this year’s programme pitch their ideas and demonstrate their Proof of Concept at London’s Canary Wharf on 17 February.

After 11 months of fine-tuning their propositions, researching the market and creating a minimal viable product prototype, the teams have made significant progress in expanding their commercial skills and preparing their cyber projects for life beyond the academic lab.

From 24 teams initially selected to participate in this year’s programme, 10 made it through to the final stage. If you missed Demo Day, you can hear a recording of their pitches and see videos of their Proof of Concepts on the links here.
