Midlands Cyber is pleased to announce we're hosting the next Cyber Runway in Partnership with Plexal

Plexal is delighted to welcome applications for our Cyber Runway, Today's Future of Digital Security, Birmingham event.

Do you have a cyber security solution for the fintech space that you'd like to pitch to investors and industry experts?

Being secure and commercially ready now is the future assurance you need as a foundation for your organisation. In this evolving threat landscape, your tech cannot be structurally insecure from the start, you must ensure you're building a product which is fundamentally secure by design.

We are looking for startups /organisations that are building cyber security solutions or secure by design solutions for the fintech space to join us and pitch their solutions.

This event will be a great chance for startups to network with fellow startups, industry experts and investors. Startups will also get to hear about how they can better engage with the local ecosystem and the various innovation programmes on offer.

Our panel of judges will provide feedback on solutions and will share their expert knowledge.
