Pitching Competition

As in previous years, the Cyber Innovation Den will also feature techUK’s annual SME Innovation Pitching Competition, which highlights the pioneering work present within the UK cyber security sector. Attendees will hear from cyber start-ups and SMEs about the latest R&D emerging from the sector, as the brightest UK companies pitch their product or service to a panel of expert judges, with the winner being named techUK’s Cyber Innovator 2023. 

This year the Cyber Innovation Pitching Competition will focus on showcasing solutions that harness emerging technologies (for example, quantum computing, AI, Machine Learning, behavioural biometrics) to help strengthen resilience across the UK economy, with pitching companies showcasing leading-edge products and solutions which will support organisations across key functions. 

Applications for this competition closed on Friday 15 September and we are now the process of identifying the 10 finalists who will pitch at the event on Wednesday 11 October.  

Applicants will be advised if they are a finalist by COP on Friday 29 September; and we will announce the finalists on this page shortly afterwards, so do check back for updates! 

One representative from each of the finalist organisations will be invited to attend techUK’s Cyber Security Dinner on the same evening as our guests.

Register now to watch our finalists pitch their innovative cyber security services and products!
