Cheltenham is THE hub for Cyber Security in the UK, full of knowledgeable individuals, great companies, new exciting start-ups and exceptional Cyber talent. The purpose of the Cyber Cheltenham Tech Hub is to further promote and encourage:
- SMEs: Provide a Cyber & Technology Start-Up and SME thought collaboration, networking and presentation forum
- Investment & Support: Develop a proactive angel investment & business support network for new exciting Cyber Start-Ups with huge growth potential
- Secure & Local Government: Provide a real opportunity for collaboration and open dialogue with Local & Secure Government bodies and initiatives such as the Cyber Accelerator scheme
- Industry: Encourage collaboration and support from Industry Corporations in the local area
Cheltenham has an excellent reputation for Cyber and technology, particularly within the areas of big data analysis and information security initiatives and is home to UK Government's authority on Cyber Security, GCHQ. However, to date, Cyber Clusters and technology investment groups have centered around Oxford, Birmingham and Bristol. We seek to address this through the Cheltenham Cyber Hub which will actively support the campaign for Cheltenham to realise its potential as a technology and Cyber Security hub.
Cheltenham Cyber Hub welcomes people involved in local Cyber and Technology innovation as well as those interested in supporting and investing in this domain. We will also publish relevant information and links.
