For many startups, finding a first customer is difficult. AustCyber supports the development of a vibrant and globally competitive Australian cyber security sector and in doing so, enhances Australia’s future economic growth in a digitally enabled global economy.
We are committed to:
- Growing Australia’s cyber security ecosystem.
- Exporting Australia’s capabilities to the work.
- Establishing Australia as the leading centre for cyber education.
As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we actively work to remove the barriers that prevent government agencies and big businesses from purchasing products and services from startups. A big part of this is education, aiming to change Australia's 'zero risk' business culture to one of engaging with 'smart risk'.
As Startup Vic’s newest Industry Partner, we look forward to assisting Victorian startups and scale-ups by:
- Providing business coaching and opportunities to showcase cyber security products and services to potential customers and investors.
- Supporting incubators, accelerators and test beds for technical validation.
- Working one-on-one with entrepreneurs on their individual business growth strategies.
- Hosting events throughout the year that focus on investment, export pathways, workforce skills development and many more topics.
We believe AustCyber has a huge amount to contribute to the Victorian startup community, particularly in the challenging times of COVID-19. For example, we’re currently providing targeted support to small businesses that have been adversely impacted economically by the pandemic.
The best way to stay up-to-date with our news and events is to become a Friend of the Network. This is a group of highly engaged, innovative, like-minded and future focused companies and organisations that are active in the global cyber security sector.
AustCyber has plenty of activities for you to connect and learn – including webinars, workshops, hackathons, GovPitch and Australian Cyber Week. We look forward to connecting and collaborating with you!
