It’s no secret that here at Capital Factory we strive to support and promote all significant developments in tech. It’s an exciting time, particularly in Texas, to witness the rapid expansion of new technologies. However, our increased dependency as a society on both technology and the internet leaves us with potential openings for hackers to exploit. As the tech industry advances, so do cybercriminals and their ability to create elaborate strategies to target companies, networks and entrepreneurs at all stages.
In today’s startup ecosystem, cybersecurity means: being alert, risk aware and creating a culture throughout your networks that can handle cybersecurity effectively. With Texas having four of the ten fastest growing cities in the United States, we are well suited to continue seeking solutions and be at the forefront of cybersecurity innovations.
On that note, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting a Cybersecurity Showcase on June 18th at Capital Factory + The DEC in Dallas, Texas. Our implementation of the Texas Startup Manifesto has driven many crucial events and summits in Dallas to continue fostering their startup community; we intend for this showcase to push even more boundaries. This pitch style event will be displaying some of our top cybersecurity companies at Capital Factory, including those involved with blockchain, AI and other related fields in the tech space.
The Cybersecurity Showcase is being presented by our Innovation Council partners. The Capital Factory Innovation Council is an assembly of qualified corporations that bring together corporate leadership, startups, mentors, events, our accelerator program and the rest of the Capital Factory ecosystem to improve collaboration and growth on all sides. We’re looking forward to developing even more programming in the future together, and helping bridge the gap between startups and corporations.
What does Showcase Day look like?
Starting at 3:30pm there will be a catered happy hour followed by a pitch showcase from a notable group of cybersecurity companies in our Accelerator portfolio. After each startup gives their pitch, there will be a brief Q+A session opened up for any follow-up inquiries from the audience. Happy hour will then continue shortly after the showcase is complete.
