Having Crossword Cybersecurity involved in CyberASAP was the obvious choice for KTN as they specialise in commercialising University cyber security IP. Their Interpersonal Sales Training for academic cyber security start-ups has become one of the highlights of the programme.

Crossword Cybersecurity has been involved
in the CyberASAP (Cyber Security Academic
Startup Accelerator Programme) since its
inception in 2017.
CyberASAP is the only pre-seed accelerator
programme in the cybersecurity ecosystem, and
provides expertise, knowledge and support to convert
academic ideas into commercial products in the
cybersecurity space. Find out more here.
CyberASAP is funded by DCMS and delivered by KTN in partnership with Innovate UK.
For that reason, Crossword Cybersecurity and CyberASAP have much in common and we support the programme doing things like team mentoring, investment preparation & readiness, training in MVP development, Entrepreneurship and, in particular, Interpersonal Selling and Go-to-Market Strategy.
We also maintain relationships with many of the teams that have gone through the CyberASAP programme to-date, and their Universities.
