San Antonio – gener8tor, the first cybersecurity cohort to be showcased during San Antonio Startup Week.
On August 25, gener8tor kicked off its Cybersecurity Accelerator program with six cybersecurity participants. The gener8tor Cybersecurity offers a cutting-edge program in San Antonio, home to the second-largest concentration of cybersecurity experts in the United States.
gener8tor is a nationally ranked accelerator that invests in high-growth startups and supports the growth of these startups through its network of experienced mentors, technologists, corporate partners, angel investors and venture capitalists.
The six companies participating in this year’s program are Blocmount, Blue2Factor, Cyber Warrior Network, Exofense, Hertzian, and KeepAware. Half of the cohort is originally from the San Antonio-Austin region, and half relocated to Military City USA from Estonia, New York, and California, showing why San Antonio is a top 10 global cyber hub.
Amanda Lee Keammerer, Managing Director of gener8tor Cybersecurity and San Antonio native.“Here in the second largest cyber hub in the nation, these six companies represent a wide range of solutions to the toughest cyber challenges facing our world today. From quantum-proof microchips and password-less multi-factor authentication to browser plug-ins and cyber talent discovery through gamification to preventing DDoS attacks through game theory and protocol layer protections, I can’t wait for everyone to meet these founders and invest in their companies, their products, and their vision.”
gener8tor Cybersecurity is housed within its partner company Geekdom, San Antonio’s premier collaborative startup community.
“When we announced the gener8tor Cybersecurity Accelerator in October 2021, we knew we were taking an important step toward growing San Antonio’s startup ecosystem. An accelerator was the piece we were missing. To have these six companies in residence at Geekdom is both exciting and energizing,” said Charles Woodin, CEO of Geekdom.
