Funding program StartUpSecure

 

Funding program StartUpSecure

For innovative start-up projects with specific reference to IT security

The StartUpSecure funding program of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research supports innovative start-up projects in two phases.

The aim of the first development phase (Phase I) is to expand the technical feasibility of a start-up idea and to evaluate the market.

In the second start-up phase (Phase II), the focus is on the transfer to the economy, the testing of first application scenarios and the implementation of the pursued business model.

The team of the start-up incubator StartUpSecure is the central contact partner for all matters concerning the funding program and provides intensive support for innovative and promising projects during the successful application process and beyond.

Since the start of the initiative, nine start-up projects have already been supported by the StartUpSecure funding program.

Founding projects and startUps from the ATHENE ecosystem

The following innovative IT security projects and/or start-ups have developed from the environment of ATHENE and were supported by the start-up incubator StartUpSecure I ATHENE. In addition to the start-ups already founded, the StartUpSecure funding program also supports other start-up projects that are in the development phase and will be founded in the near future. The selection makes no claim to completeness.


Sanctuary

Foundation takes place in the near future

In the Sanctuary project, a flexible and practicable security architecture for arm-based computer systems is to be developed. The Sanctuary security architecture is intended to make it possible for the first time to create any number of isolated execution environments for software so that they can be used exclusively by individual sensitive services.
