Co-Founding?

COMMITMENT TO INCREASING VALUE

We have re-invented the idea of co-founding. Co-founding goes beyond conventional “accelerator” and “incubator” programs to give you both the support and the commitment you need in order to significantly increase the value of your startup. As co-founders of your company, we will be involved in every aspect of your venture and do what it takes to ensure that it reaches its full potential in every respect.

From the kick off, with a clear strategy and total focus, we will take your idea through our proven methodology and carefully prepare it for funding. By the end of the process, your venture will have all of the deliverables it needs to gain its first significant funding and climb all the way to the top.

The duration of the CyberWYZ Cyber Security Program is eight months. It is an in-depth program with standard and customized modules in every field. Members of the program will benefit from daily interaction with CyberWYZ experts to ensure thorough preparation across all disciplines.
