ECSO cybersecurity business matchmaking events – also known as the ECSO Cyber Investor Days – are designed to cover different investment phases, ranging from seeding to strategic investment and M&A, as well as to support companies positioned on the entire cybersecurity value chain. The initiative aims to increase the visibility of the European cybersecurity market players and to foster the consolidation of the European cybersecurity market.
The 8th edition of the Cyber Investor Days is scheduled on 30 November - 1 December 2020 in Bochum, Germany.
Despite the challenging times, the most promising European cybersecurity startups and SMEs will have a chance to pitch their innovative solutions and hold B2B meetings with the leading investors and corporates from Europe and beyond. In addition, two best cybersecurity companies participating at the 8th Cyber Investor Days will be nominated to compete for the European Cybersecurity STARtup Award.
8th Cyber Investor Days will be organised as a hybrid event, allowing physical (in-person) and virtual (remote) attendance.
To be selected for the pitches and B2B meetings, European cybersecurity startups and SMEs are invited to submit their applications to ECSO for evaluation and selection. Interested corporates and investors from Europe and beyond are invited to register their attendance here.
The last edition of the ECSO Cyber Investor Days took place on 13-14 May 2020 and was organised as an all-virtual event. It proved to be a great success – the record number of investors and corporates attended the event, around 150 virtual B2B meetings were held.

In many sectors, SMEs can use enabling technologies to redesign their operations and become green(er). Standards are fundamental for sustainable technology as they provide reliable, consistent building blocks that can be universally understood and adopted. These building blocks aid in promoting compatibility and interoperability and speed up time-to-market.
