The initiative aims to increase the visibility of the European cybersecurity market players and to foster the consolidation of the European cybersecurity market.

European cybersecurity startups and SMEs will have a chance to pitch their innovative cybersecurity solutions and hold B2B meetings with the leading investors and corporates from Europe and beyond. 9th Cyber Investor Days will be organised as a virtual event, allowing remote attendance.

Two best cybersecurity companies participating in the Porto edition of the Cyber Investor Days will be nominated to compete for the ECSO’s European Cybersecurity STARtup Award.
