Kamelia Maleschlijski

The SpeedUpSecure accelerator programme supported ten promising cybersecurity start-ups from Germany, which were accompanied by experts from May to September. At the Final Pitch Day on 21.09.23 in Darmstadt, the start-ups were able to demonstrate what they had learned and presented their own business idea in a 3-minute pitch. StartUpSecure KASTEL was co-organiser and also took part in this event.


The startup Sanctuary received the first prize of 10,000 euros for its innovative cybersecurity solution targeting embedded systems. The jury stated that this solution addresses a critical problem in enterprise security and could be a game changer in cybersecurity. Validaitor secured the second prize of €5,000 for its platform for quality assurance and certification of AI systems, while Lubis EDA won the third prize of €2,500 to promote the development of bug-free microchips. The startup Devity also won the innovation prize of 2,500 euros for its IoT configuration application.
