Virginia cyber accelerator gains key sponsorship
Virginia’s Mach37 cybersecurity accelerator gained an important endorsement this week with a four-year platinum sponsorship from General Dynamics Mission Systems.
The agreement will help further Mach37’s public-private partnerships that leverage Virginia’s university, industry and government cybersecurity assets to produce new innovative products and companies.
The Mach37 90-day program competitively selects entrepreneurs to be coached in creating and launching cybersecurity businesses, which are then pitched to investors. So far, the program has yielded 29 new cybersecurity companies.
“Mach37 gives us access to Virginia’s smartest minds and innovative technologies, accelerating the delivery of cybersecurity products and solutions that our customers need, when they need it,” said Nadia Short, vice president and general manager of the Cyber Systems line of business for General Dynamics Mission Systems.
This four-year platinum sponsorship was created to supplement the original funding for Mach37 by the Virginia General Assembly.
