Tampa Bay Wave welcomes 16 cybersecurity startups into the CyberTech|X 2024 Accelerator Cohort

Tampa Bay Wave, a nonprofit technology accelerator, has selected 16 cybersecurity startups for its CyberTech|X 2024 Accelerator program.

This year’s cohort includes startups from Florida, California, New York and Virginia, plus international regions like Spain, Chile and Canada.

The CyberTech|X 2024 Accelerator program is supported by a $2 million federal grant from the U.S. Economic Development Administration which aims to foster regional innovation clusters in cybersecurity, fintech and healthtech.

Each participant in the CyberTech|X 2024 Accelerator program will benefit from a comprehensive three-month business accelerator experience, designed for founders by founders. This experience includes mentoring, sales training, pitch coaching and investor introductions, culminating in a Pitch Night on March 28, where the startups will present their innovative solutions to a gathering of investors, community members and industry leaders.

The CyberTech|X 2024 Accelerator program launched this week.

The program is supported by key funding partners including A-LIGN, KnowBe4, EY and strategic partners such as Bank of America, Cyber Florida, Digital Hands, 360 Advanced and USF Muma College of Business.
