A game-changer in understanding market demand.

We are aware that taking an idea from concept to commercial success is both daunting to many and incredibly difficult for everyone.

Market traction for a new commercial venture is vital. An idea and a valuable solution that someone will pay for are two very different things. Our CyberSight25 programme is a game-changer in understanding market demand.

We have partnered with the Alliances team to run the CyberSight25 campaign – providing thought leadership in defining the cyber security problems of today and tomorrow. We are picking the brains of serious players in the cyber industry seeking thought leadership in defining the cyber security problems of today and tomorrow.

By 2025, we aim to have 25 well-defined cyber problems, articulated by 25 of the World’s leading cyber experts. This includes CISOs, CIOs, and anyone else who is living and breathing a cyber problem that they just can’t find the right solution for – despite all the marketing hype!

Our venture building programme Providing market pull for our venture building programme

We run a unique venture building programme where we build commercial teams around people with big ideas.

Designed for those with the vision and motivation to solve the world’s most pressing cyber problems. From PhD students or academics to someone with years of experience in an operational industry role and a clear vision to solve the problems they can’t currently solve in their job. “Why has nobody built this yet, it’s so obvious…I would buy it tomorrow” – sound like you? Find out more about our venture building programme here 

We see several major blockers to building a successful commercial venture. One is developing a balanced team, equipped with skills in technology and innovation, as well as commercial acumen, customer development, and software skills. If you have the right idea, we’ll build that team around you on and even pay you £1500 a month to build your team

Access to mentors from the cyber industry, commercial advisors, customer development skills, and user interface design are also of vital importance – you’ll have access to all of these on the venture building programme

A major requirement is market traction for your new commercial venture. Our challenges act as the entry point to our unique venture building programme, ensuring solutions address real-world problems.

The CyberSight25 insights will provide a market pull for the teams on our venture building programme, and the CyberSight experts have even committed some of their precious time to mentor the venture building team during the ideation and solution development phase of the venture building programme to ensure they are on track! Where else are you going to get this?

The podcasts will become part of our venture challenges.
