• CYBERSPACE DEVELOPMENT & DEFENSE VENTURES

  • Early Stage Ventures Developing Exponential Technologies to Solve World’s Toughest Cybersecurity Problems

TARGET VENTURE

    Cyber Nation Central seeks to help build Ventures focused on Cyberspace Development & Defense, with following characteristics:
  • OVERALL:
    1. Particular focus on cybersecurity
    2. Technology at intersection of exponential technologies (e.g. AI)
    3. Market-tested/proven & commercialized technology (need not yet have fully scaled)
    4. Solving major global cyberspace development, defense, and privacy challenges
  • VENTURES SOLVING CYBERSECURITY ISSUES OF:
    1. Future of Autonomous Transportation
    2. Future of National Defense (at national, state, and city level)
    3. Future of Healthcare
    4. Future of Personal & Institutional Digital/Data Integrity, Veracity, and Privacy
  • WITH CYBER NATION CENTRAL’S PARTICULAR INTEREST IN:
    1. Securing the Autonomous & Connected nature of…
    2. …Vehicles, Logistics, and Critical Infrastructure…
    3. …of Transportation, Defense, and Healthcare sectors
  • VENTURE TEAM:
    1. Credible Founder-Market Fit
    2. Solid and higher-purpose-minded
    3. Coachable, Scalable, Ego under Control
    4. Demonstrated discipline in A+ talent hiring and retention
    5. Demonstrated Execution, Strategic, and Financial Discipline
    6. Can point to Major Failure(s) in the past and Lessons Learned
  • VENTURE’S GEOGRAPHIC ORIGIN:
    1. Predominantly cybersecurity technologies developed in US & Israel
  • VENTURE NEEDS FOR CYBER NATION CENTRAL TO ENGAGE:
    1. Seed, Series A and, selectively, Series B funding
    2. Help distributing their technology to US and allied markets across Asia
    3. Strategic advisory and help at the Board and C-Level
  • STRATEGY:
    1. Cyber Nation Central believes in creating sovereign nations in cyberspace. As a result, we treat startup innovation as a precursor to bolstering the national (cyber)security of any country, whether it’s through application of technologies in the private sector of a country or its government sector
    2. Ventures should therefore be focused on securing our nations through cutting- edge innovation that meaningfully redefines the landscape (i.e. “not just the pursuit of another best iPhone app…”)
  • UNDERLYING TECHNOLOGY:
    1. Best-in-class cybersecurity technology seeking to solve most challenging cybersecurity problems of the world
    2. Represents a frontier of cybersecurity technology innovation yet one that’s ready for commercial adoption and scalable commercialization
    3. Technologies that, ideally, battle a citizen, an institution, and/or a nation’s ALL THREE POTENTIAL LOSSES stemming from a cyber hack (and therefore are highly scalable):
      1. Loss of reputational well-being
      2. Loss of financial well-being and, most importantly
      3. Loss of LIFE
    4. Large addressable market
    5. Disruptive technology, with defensible IP
    6. Has already (and successfully so) been commercially deployed (rare exceptions will be made for teams with proven track record)
    7. Particular focus on Cybersecurity of IoT and Connected Devices, Cloud Infrastructure Security, Control Systems
    8. Innovative usage of frontier tech (AI/ML, blockchain, quantum computing, etc) in cybersecurity solution being developed
  • BUSINESS MODEL:
    1. Focused on addressing a major global issue in the area of cybersecurity and cyberspace development and defense more broadly
    2. Already proven, with confirmed Product-Market Fit
    3. Already revenue generative (need not have scaled yet)
