An accelerator programme branded as “H.A.C.K” has been launched by the Karnataka’s Centre of Excellence in cyber security (CySecK). H.A.C.K is the Karnataka’s first cybersecurity-specific accelerator programme comprising of 21 start-ups on board across three cohorts: 10x cohort, 0-1 cohort and virtual cohort.
H.A.C.K has been launched to support mature Indian start-ups in order to help them in accelerating their growth via government as well as market connections. It will also help the nascent start-ups to mature through an innovative incubation eco-system and marquee mentorship, and hence will support India’s Atma-Nirbhar Bharat Abhiyan.
The Centre of Excellence in cyber security (CySecK) is housed on the campus of Indian Institute of Science, which is the anchor institute, while Karnataka State Council for Science and Technology is the implementation agency.
