Luxembourg Calling - Cybersecurity Program
The House of DeepTech is inviting cybersecurity pioneers to participate in a soft landing initiative that ultimately aims to make strategic business connections between scaleup cybersecurity companies and qualified Luxembourg and European fintech operators. Supercharge your growth and ensure you hit the ground running with a 100% digital Luxembourg business partner that is located in the hub of the European deep tech/fintech ecosystem, with a deeply experienced team of navigators that will help you to increase brand awareness, market share, and access to capital, in the European markets.
A cohort of 20 export-focused Companies are selected every six months to be incubated in the House of DeepTech in our
9 month Luxembourg Calling Program - 3 month intensive + 6-month immersion.
What's in it for your Company?
• Demonstrated export capability and the ability to comply with GDPR and data sovereignty.
• An established domestic customer base and proof of concept/proof of value case studies.
• Cybersecurity competencies that are uniquely differentiated and price competitive for the European market.
Cohort companies are selected if they are ready to scale their companies into the European Union and have traction in their home market, with a sound demonstration of market demand from export markets. Successful applicants are likely to be sweat equity funded on the back of strong domestic revenues or have already raised angel funding or previous venture capital investments from VCs.
Cohort startups are paired with a Chief Navigator and led through a 3-month intensive land and expand program followed by a 6-month market and funding immersion. Companies are given a tailored program that aligns to their strategic objectives of connecting to market and capital and receives guided access to the R3I Ventures European network. Companies are connected at the highest levels of corporations to design strategic alliances, partnerships, and direct sales.
Chief Navigators work hand-in-hand to support Cohort companies with a personalized program designed in 6 phases:
FORMAT - 100% DIGITAL
THE HOUSE OF DEEPTECH WAS PURPOSELY DESIGNED TO EMPOWER FOUNDERS IN A FRICTION FREE DIGITAL ECONOMY
(and by chance - a COVID19 PANDEMIC!)
Starting with our Spring 2021 Cohort, The House of DeepTech has launched its inaugural Luxembourg calling program as a Digital Program permanently designed to enable Founders to thrive in a friction-free and digital economy.
We invite Scaleups to participate remotely from all over the world.
These companies will continue to have the same high number of opportunities to network with investors, advisors, and to build community with fellow cohort members during this period than they would if they would permanently be based on the ground in Luxembourg. Package options are available for domestic hires, for colocation.
Founders have told us that they do not want to dilute for in-market immersion and expansion programs, which is why this program is equity-free as a Pay for Play Program.
Founders First - this is a NO EQUITY fee for service program.
Seek up to 100% reimbursement from your Government's Export Development Programs.
Program Start Date: March 15th, 2021
